- Product overview
ab108712 Brucella IgG Human ELISA Kit is intended for the qualitative determination of IgG class antibodies against Brucella in human serum or plasma (citrate).
Brucella is a small Gram-negative bacterium (0.4-0.8 µm in diameter and 0.4-3.0 µm in length) which is non-flagellated, and non-spore forming. They are named after the military doctor David Bruce, who on Malta in 1887 isolated the pathogens from the spleen of a soldier who died of undulating fever. Four species are pathogenic to human: Brucella abortus, Brucella melitensis, Brucella suis and Brucella canis. All four species are exciters of Brucellosis, a disease characterized by undulating fever. Depending on exciter the disease is also called Morbus Bang (B. abortus) or Malta fever (B. melitensis).
The pathogens are transmitted from animals, which are mainly affected. The infection is caused by contact with ill animals or their excrements as well as by non-pasteurized milk and milk products like fresh cheese from sheep or goat. Main entrances are skin wounds, conjunctives and digestive tract. The intact pathogens are transported by granulocytes into local lymph nodes, from where they spread haematogenous. All kind of organs can be infected.
