Streptolysin is a haemolytic exotoxin produced by bacteria of family Streptococcaceae. Streptolysin O (SLO) and Streptolysin S (SLS) are the two types wherein SLO is hemolytically more active as compared to SLS due to large size. The anti-streptolysin reagents, kits, assays and titres are carried out to assess the levels of antibodies produced against SLO. Anti-streptolysin reagents are used to monitor the toxicity and levels of SLO via titration of anti-streptolysin reagents with serum sample of the patient. The infections may result in acute rheumatic fever or acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis which can be detected through titre using anti-streptolysin reagents. The anti-streptolysin reagents along with recommended calibrators and controls are mostly available in kits from various manufacturers to check the toxins. Anti-streptolysin reagents reaction provides useful information for diagnosis and monitoring infections. The infections that can be detected include scarlet fever, tonsillitis, otitis and erysipelas. The anti-streptolysin reagents market is expected to grow with increasing awareness about the signs and symptoms caused by antibodies produced on reaction.
