What is the Anti-Streptolysin O (ASO) assay used for?

What is Anti-Streptolysin O (ASO)?

Streptolysin O (SLO) is a toxic and lethal, exocellular immunogenic protein produced and released in response to Group A Streptococcal pyogenes.  For more information on streptococcal infections, please click here [external link].  The release of SLO stimulates the production of Anti-Streptolysin O (ASO) antibodies to neutralise the SLO’s haemolytic effects. The O in the name stands for oxygen-labile.

What is the Anti-Streptolysin O (ASO) assay used for?

The Anti-Streptolysin (ASO) test is used to determine recent streptococcal infection and post streptococcal complications which includes rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis. The presence and level of ASO antibodies in human serum directly reflects the extent and degree of infection. Elevated levels of ASO may also be present in other conditions including scarlet fever, acute rheumatoid arthritis, tonsillitis and various other streptococcal infections as well as in health carriers.

The Randox Anti-Streptolysin (ASO) assay is used to measure the presence of anti-streptolysin antibodies in the blood to determine if a strep infection is present.
