Antibodies against Echinococcus

Serological diagnosis and differentiation between cystic and alveolar echinococcosis

Highly sensitive screening and confirmatory tests for the serological two-step diagnosis of echinococcosis

  • Screening: Anti-Echinococcus ELISA (IgG)
  • Confirmation and differentiation: Anti-Echinococcus EUROLINE-WB (IgG)

Anti-Echinococcus granulosus IIFT

Positive (above) and negative (below) reaction of the Anti-Echinococcus granulosus IIFT
Positive (above) and negative (below) reaction of the Anti-Echinococcus granulosus IIFT
  • For the detection of antibodies against Echinococcus granulosus (cystic echinococcosis)
  • Antigen: frozen tissue sections of Echinococcus granulosus protoscolices
  • Cross reactions with Echinococcus multilocularis cannot be excluded
  • Serum dilution 1 : 100; conjugate class anti-IgG, fluorescein-labelled
  • Alongside serology, the use of imaging techniques for confirmation of the diagnosis of cystic echinococcosis is recommended
