Brucella abortus, small coccoid gram-negative immobile rod-shaped bacteria, are intracellular parasites of many farm animals. Like the other species Brucella melitensis, B. suis and B. canis it is the causative agent of bucellosis. The disease affecting humans is known as undulant fever or Bang’s Disease. People are infected by contact with infected animals or by eating meat or drinking unpasteurized milk from infected animals. As a rule, infected humans are not contagious. After an incubation period of 2-3 weeks, the disease start with high fever.
The Immunolab Brucella abortus IgG/IgM/IgA ELISAs are quantitative and qualitative tests for the detection of human antibodies to the human-pathogen species Brucella abortus in serum and plasma. The differentiation of several immunoglobulin classes enables the detection of antigen contact and provides information about the disease state.
