ELISA IgM test for SARS-CoV2
The SARS-CoV-2 IgM ELISA kit is an in vitro diagnostic test for the qualitative detection of IgM antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum.
The kit is intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARSCoV-2, indicating recent or prior infection.
At this time, it is unknown for how long antibodies persist following infection and if the presence of antibodies confers protective immunity.
The SARS-CoV-2 IgM ELISA KIT should not be used to diagnose acute SARS‑CoV‑2 infection. Results are for the detection of IgM SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
IgM antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 are generally detectable in blood several days after initial infection, although the duration of time antibodies are present post-infection is not well characterized. Individuals may have detectable virus present for several weeks following seroconversion.
The sensitivity of SARSARS-CoV-2 IgM ELISA early after infection is unknown. Negative results do not preclude acute SARS-CoV-2 infection. If acute infection is suspected, direct testing for SARS-CoV-2 is necessary.
False positive results for SARS-CoV-2 IgM ELISA may occur due to cross-reactivity from pre-existing antibodies or other possible causes.
