Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does Microbix offer other types of Chlamydia?
Yes, we culture other species and serovars of Chlamydia on a custom basis. Please contact customer service if you have specific requirements.
2. Will EL-12-02 cross react with other Chlamydia species?
Yes. The genus Chlamydia comprises three species, C. trachomatis, C. muridarum, and C. suis. All share a common genus-specific lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antigen that is further shared by members of the genus Chlamydophila, in addition to crossreactive outer membrane protein antigens. Due to the presence of such common antigenic determinants, EL-12-02 will cross-react with other Chlamydiaceae species.
3. Why does the protein concentration vary lot to lot?
The value on our C of A is the total protein and not a direct measure of Chlamydia protein. We use an immunoassay to ensure the amount of Chlamydia protein is consistent lot to lot. For additional information on the concentration of our antigens and suggestions how to best use this product please read C pneumoniae Technical Bulletin 004.
