PropertiesSalmonella OB Antigen 5ml antigen test kits are used in the detection of antibodies produced in Salmonella OB Antigen 5mlantigen tests are serological applications of the classical Widal reaction for the diagnosis
AdvantagesSerological diagnosis of patients suspected of having infectious diseases characterized by persistent fever is dependent upon demonstration of an agglutination reaction between the appropriate antigen and antibody.
SpecificationsThe natural response to the invasion of pathogenic organisms is the production of antibodies. This immune response is highly individualized and in addition to the host’s physiological status and genetic capabilities, a number of other factors are involved in the production of antibodies to the particular stimulus. These include the antigenicity of the organism, the total amount introduced to the host and the route of introduction, and whether the host has had previous exposure to the organism. These factors will determine the rate of antibody formation, the amount of antibodies produced and their persistence in the circulatory system. The patient’s serum is tested directly for specific antibodies by either slide or tube agglutination test by Rapid labs. These tests are qualitative and semi-quantitative. The rapid slide test is used primarily as a screening procedure especially useful when large numbers of sera must be examined. The tube test should be used to confirm positive results obtained by the slide test.
DiseaseSalmonella typhimurium, enteriditis and Salmonella paratyphi antibodies or media detect this rod-shaped (bacillus) gram-negative bacteria of the Enterobacteriaceae family. The two species of Salmonella are Salmonella enterica and Salmonella bongori. Salmonella enterica is the type species and is further divided into six subspecies that include over 2500 serovars. S. enterica subspecies are found worldwide in all warm-blooded animals, and in the environment. S. bongori is restricted to cold-blooded animals particularly reptiles. Strains of Salmonella cause illnesses such as typhoid fever, paratyphoid fever, and food poisoning (salmonellosis).
DescriptionAntigens are peptides or recombinant or native dependent on the production method.
