Discovery

Monoclonal antibodies produced to Aspergillus conidia detect small molecular weight galactofuranose-containing Aspergillus antigens in urine (animals, humans)

Detection of antigen is improved by processing urine through a column prior to testing.

Technology

With our monoclonal antibodies and patent-pending technology, we can detect fungal antigens in high amounts in urine using immobilized devices. Shown is a urine test showing fungal antigens (T = test, C = control) from a patient with confirmed fungal pneumonia.
