Celiac disease—is it just the tip of the iceberg? Screening data from the US and Europe demonstrate that the prevalence of nonrecognized celiac disease is significantly higher than the cases already diagnosed today. The numerous late consequences of untreated celiac disease require a test allowing reliable and sensitive detection or even an early prognosis.

AESKULiSA® tTg ELISA kits performed excellent in a recent Multi-Centre Celiac Serology Study undertaken to define the optimal serological screening approach in the assessment of Celiac Disease.

AESKULiSA® Celicheck even placed first as the best dual isotype transglutaminase kit of all assays tested.

The reason is obvious: AESKULiSA® tTg ELISA kits show a unique composition. Human recombinant tissue transglutaminase is cross-linked with gliadin-specific peptides resulting in the creation of neoepitopes of tTg. The tests are highly specific as no cross-reactions with gliadin occur. Thus, the AESKULISA tests are the only available tTg test to mimic the physiologically relevant tTg enzyme complex, offering impressive benefits.

With FDA approval for the AESKULiSA® tTg IgA and tTg IgG tests, a new generation of tTg tests for the diagnosis of celiac disease is now at hand for in vitro diagnostic use in the US. AESKULiSA® CeliCheck will follow soon.

AESKU.DIAGNOSTICS offers a unique product portfolio: more than 100 different ELISA assays for a fast, economical, and reliable diagnosis of autoimmune diseases and for a broad range of research applications.

QuantiFERON®-TB Gold: One blood test, one clear answer for tuberculosis

QuantiFERON®-TB Gold (QFT) is the revolutionary new blood test for detection of tuberculosis infection. FDA approved and CDC recommended, QFT provides a more efficient and cost-effective approach for hospital and public health TB-control programs. Recognized by TB clinicians as a superior alternative to the 100-year-old tuberculin skin test, QFT specifically detects TB-infected individuals and is not confounded by BCG vaccination or other mycobacteria. QFT also offers improved testing compliance since results are obtained with a single blood draw, compared to the tuberculin skin test which requires at least two clinic visits to perform. The ability of QFT to specifically detect TB infected individuals using a single blood sample is providing significant economic and medical benefits to US. and international TB control programs that have already adopted QFT.

The QUANTA Lite™ CCP3.1 IgG/IgA (cyclic citrullinated peptide) ELISA is an improved version of CCP3, the third-generation assay, featuring a blended dual- specificity IgG/IgA conjugate. The exact sequence of CCP3.1 is proprietary and patent pending. Antibodies from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) react very specifically with CCP on the solid phase. The use of a blended anti-IgG and IgA affinity purified conjugate allows the detection of antibodies in a small but significant cohort of RA patients that do not react with IgG alone. The QUANTA Lite™ CCP3.1 ELISA offers up to a 9% increase in sensitivity for the detection of early RA patients over that seen with CCP2. In addition, the specificity of CCP3.1 is increased over that observed in earlier CCP2 assays.
