Complete ELISA Kit for Japanese Encephalitis Virus Also Differentiates from Dengue


The JE Detect™ IgM Antibody Capture ELISA (MAC-ELISA) Kit for exposure to Japanese Encephalitis virus (JEV) is an ELISA assay system for the detection of IgM antibodies in human serum to JEV-derived recombinant antigen.

This test is to aid in the diagnosis of human exposure to the Japanese Encephalitis virus (JEV). It is not intended to screen blood or blood components and is for professional in vitro diagnostic use only. This kit has not been optimized for vaccine-induced seroconversion studies.

The complete kit includes one 96 well strippable plate with all necessary reagents and controls.

Key Features:

  • Can be used together with InBios DENV Detect IgM Capture ELISA to differentiate Japanese Encephalitis from Dengue1
  • Improves accuracy by monitoring background reactivity with a normal cell antigen.
  • Employs a simple, one-step ratio method of interpretation.
  • CE-Marked

Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus, a flavivirus, is closely related to West Nile and St. Louis encephalitis viruses. JE virus is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected Culex species mosquitoes, particularly Culex tritaeniorhynchus.

The virus has been prevalent in certain parts of India for several years, most notably in the Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts who have had 44 cases of JE so far this year (2021). However, the number of cases has been dropping over the last two years as a result of door-to-door visits to create awareness, the distribution of mosquito nets, and fogging being done in the rural pockets and the urban vulnerable pockets.2
