Fasciola Hepatica (9650) is an ELISA kit for diagnosis of fascioliasis. Manufactured by Bordier Affinity Products.
Fasciolosis is one of the most frequently encountered autochthonous helminthic infection in Central Europe. The immunodiagnosis of Fasciola hepatica infections is challenged by high serological cross-reactivity with other (hepatic) parasitological infections encountered in Central Europe, such as alveolar echinococcosis, toxocarosis and ascariosis, but also other parasitic infections acquired during overseas travel. The SAP-2 recombinant antigen shows a high specificity, especially with patients with other parasitic infections. It is a suitable serological test for routine diagnosis of human fasciolosis, particularly if the results are supported by clinical history.
