Treponema Pallidum

brief description

The serological diagnosis of Syphilis is performed by demonstrating the presence of significant levels of specific Treponema pallidum antibodies in the serum sample. The reference method used is the FTA-ABS technique which allows the detection of both IgG and IgM. However, its execution is laborious and the interpretation of the results is not simple; alternative methods have therefore been introduced to simplify the procedure. ELISA gives completely automated, reproducible and specific results, and for this reason is favoured by many operators. The specific assay of IgM as opposed to IgG is of particular importance in the diagnosis of congenital Syphilis.

intended use

The EIAgen TMPA IgG is an immunoenzymatic method for the qualitative determination of IgG-class antibodies to treponema pallidum in human serum.
