Brucella IgG Ab ELISA Kit (Bovine)

INTENDED USE

Bovine brucella IgG ELISA kit is intended for measuring levels of IgG antibodies against polysaccharide epitopes of brucella (bovine) in serum or milk samples. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.

BACKGROUND

Brucella is a gram negative zoonotic bacteria that is frequently discovered in cattle (especially bovine), despite many eradication programmes carried out in many countries throughout the world, this infection still remains an endemic in many cattle population. This has resulted in serological test for brucella infected cattle being routinely undertake through serum screening for antibodies directed against bacterial agglutinating antigens. Screens are often useful for the initial presumptive diagnosis of brucellosis or in many cases to even screen the complete herds. However, these test are time consuming, provide limited sensitivity and in most cases very difficult to read. This monoclonal antibody based procedure is designed to provide highly sensitive and specific, as well as a rapid screen for analysing Brucella antibodies present in milk and serum samples of infected cattle.

SENSITIVITY

The standard range of IgG antibodies to bovine brucella  epitopes using current bovine brucella IgG ELISA kit is qualitative and quantitative. Please contact us for the protocol insert for more details.

ASSAY CHARACTERISTICS

– Bovine Brucella IgG: ELISA
– Qualitative: Samples with the S/P ratio ≥0 .4 are positive and samples with the S/P ratio < 0 .4 are negative.
– Quantitative: End point titre – ELISA titres can be calculated using as cut-off 2.5 times OD value of negative control at 1:30.

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.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

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.
