FHV (Feline Herpes Virus) ELISA Kit (Feline)


FHV ELISA kit is designed for measuring antibodies against feline herpes virus (FHV or FHV-1) using plasma or serum samples. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.


Feline herpes virus (also called FHV or FHV-1) is a contagious ubiquitous virus which is responsible for causing upper respiratory infections (URIs, also more commonly known as cat flu). In majority of instances, a specific diagnosis is usually not required and instead the typical signs are enough in order to make a presumptive diagnosis of FHA infection. If there is a need for a specific diagnosis then this can be accomplished by various laboratory testing. These can include virus isolation, serology (for example serum neutralizing titers and ELISA assays), fluorescent antibody and PCR analysis. There may also be evidence of the virus from biopsies, this can be useful for diagnosing skin infections as a result of FHV-associated dermatitis. The treatment process tends to be aimed at controlling the clinical signs and possibility reducing secondary complications. It is vital to understand that at present there are no cures for herpes virus.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

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

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.

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

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