Anti-TPO ELISA kit

REF 24-06

The Anti-TPO ELISA kit is intended for quantitative determination of autoantibodies against thyroid peroxidase in human serum. 

TPO is a key enzyme in the biosynthesis of thyroid hormones. Autoantibodies against thyroid peroxidase (Anti-TPO) are mainly IgG and less frequently IgM. In healthy individuals concentrations of Anti-TPO in serum may reach 30 U/mL. Anti-TPO levels exceeding this limit are the sign of an autoimmune process that usually leads to thyroid dysfunction, mainly due to reduced thyroxin secretion. Determination of Anti-TPO antibodies in serum is used for diagnosis of autoimmune thyroid diseases like idiopatic mixoedema, Hashimoto thyroiditis and Graves disease.
