BINDAZYME Human Anti-Gliadin MGP IgG and IgA EIA Kits

Features

Conventional gliadin ELISA methods use crude gliadin antigen and have shown limited sensitivity and specificity for the diagnosis of celiac disease. BINDAZYME Human Anti-Gliadin MGP IgG and IgA EIA Kits use a modified gliadin peptide that is deamidated by the enzyme tissues transglutaminase (tTg) enhancing the immunogenicity of gliadin.

Benefits

BINDAZYME Anti-Gliadin MGP provides superior sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic accuracy over conventional methods. Production of gliadin antibodies early in the disease makes BINDAZYME MGP a useful marker for early detection. Other benefits of MGP include monitoring celiac disease activity and compliance to a gluten-free diet. Binding Site automation protocols are available.
