HEV Rapid and ELISA Kits
Atlas Link Technology Co., Ltd supplies various HEV antigen and antibodies test kits, including one-step rapid test method and ELISA method.
HEV Test Kits
Atlas Link Technology Co., Ltd supplies various antigen and antibodies test kits, including one-step rapid test method and ELISA method, which are used to qualitatively detect HEV antigen, HEV IgG antibody, and HEV IgM antibody. All these HEV test kits are intended for professional use only, and used as an aid in the diagnosis of infection of hepatitis E virus.
While HEV IgM rapid test kit is used as a convenient and rapid POCT testing device, the HEV ELISA kits can be used in blood banks and laboratories, where mass blood specimens need to be tested with higher sensitivity and specificity.
Studies on HEV
With the discovery of confirmative epitopes in HEV, HEV serology was further explored and understood. The phenomenon of long-lasting and protective antibodies to HEV was observed which greatly enhance the understanding to the diagnosis, epidemiology, zoonosis-related studies, and vaccine development. The HEV immunoassay test kits supplied by Atlas Link Technology Co., Ltd embody the latest search results in the serology diagnosis of HEV infections.
Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a non-enveloped, single-stranded RNA virus. Four genotypes of HEV have been reported. HEV is transmitted mainly by fecal contaminated water and food.
Mortality rates of HEV are generally low, and hepatitis E is 'self-limiting' because the disease usually disappears by itself after several weeks. But, it occasionally develops into acute liver disease, and in that case the fatality is about 0.3 to 2%. In pregnant women, the disease is more severe and is associated with a clinical syndrome called fulminant hepatic failure, of which the fatality rate can be as high as 25-30%.
