FPV ELISA kit is intended for analysing antibodies against feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) in samples of serum or plasma. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.
Feline panleukopenia virus (FPV), is a life threatening and highly contagious viral disease found in cats. It is primarily responsible for affecting the rapid dividing blood cells which can be found in the intestinal tract, bone marrow and stem cells (developing fetus). There is evidence to indicate the FPV is also able to mimic many other diseased conditions such as feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), feline leukemia (FeLV), pancreatitis and poisoning. For diagnosis of FPV infection and vaccination control, measuring antibody titre is one of the most common procedure used. This involves having a virus being attached to the solid phase via monoclonal antibodies that are able to catch the antibodies which have been induced as a result of the either infection or vaccination. Antibody titers which are greater than 1:1350 dilutions are then considered to be protected. Other test are available to analyse the virus in feces, but the isolation step can be quite time consuming and the test itself is expensive. Also, any recent vaccinations against panleukopenia will result in producing a false positive.
The standard range of feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) using current FPV ELISA Kit is qualitative and quantitative. Please contact us for the protocol insert for more details.
