CDV (Canine Distemper Virus) IgM ELISA Kit (Dog)

  • Created on the 1 November, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Canine distemper virus (CDV), can also be sometimes called hardpad disease. It is caused by single stranded DNA virus, a member of the Paramyxoviridae family and related to the viruses that can lead to measles or rinderpest. This viral disease can affect a large array of animal families which can include: dogs, foxes, wolves, ferrets, coyotes, skunks and raccoons. Especially in canines, distemper virus can impact a number of different body systems such as the brain, spinal cord, gastrointestinal tracts and respiratory tracts. Vaccination is important in order to prevent this disease, puppies need to be vaccinated initially between 6-8 weeks, followed by a booster shot every 2-4 weeks until age of 16 weeks. This ELISA assay is based on a monoclonal mediated system that can determine IgM antibodies against canine distemper virus (CDV) using samples of plasma and serum.

INTENDED USE

Canine distemper virus (CDV) IgM ELISA kit is designed for measuring IgM antibodies to canine distemper virus (dog) using plasma or serum. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.

SENSITIVITY

The standard range of CDV (canine distemper virus) IgM using this canine distemper virus (CDV) IgM ELISA kit is qualitative and quantitative. Please contact us for the protocol insert for more details.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
