FeLV-gp27 (Feline Leukaemia Virus) Antigen ELISA Kit (Feline)

  • Created on the 19 January, 2018.

BACKGROUND

Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is responsible for causing various blood disorder such as leukaemia and lymphoma in cats. If the virus is not defeated by the animal’s immune system then this could lead diseases which might be lethal. Also, this is a species specific virus and is not able to infect other animals such as dogs. There are vaccines that are available, however, they do not offer 100% protection and serious side effects have been reported. One of the major core protein of FeLV is FeLV p27-antigen, this antigen can be found in the blood of FeLV infected felines. The FeLV-p27 antigen ELISA test offers an alternative to the more widely used method IFA test on blood smears, with both procedures providing comparable results. We would also recommend carrying out an IFA, PCR or virus-isolation in order to confirm a positive ELISA result.

INTENDED USE

Feline FeLV-gp27 ELISA kit is designed to detect feline leukemia virus-p27 antigen (FeLV-gp27) using serum and plasma samples. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.

SENSITIVITY

The standard range of feline leukemia virus-p27 antigen using this feline FeLV-gp27 ELISA kit is qualitative and quantitative. Please contact us for the protocol insert for more details.

TESTIMONIALS arrow icon

Your secretory IgA ELISA kit gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

Dr. P. Anderson
Lecturer / University College London (UCL)

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.

Dr. C. Davies
