CDV IgG ELISA Kit (Canine Distemper Virus)

Full Name: CDV IgG ELISA Kit (Canine Distemper Virus)
Reactivity: Canine/Dog
Sample Type: Plasma, Serum
Sensitivity: Qualitative


Canine distemper virus affects animal families that includes; dogs, wolves, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, ferrets and skunks. In canines, it is found to impact respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts, the brain and the spinal cord. CDV can be caused by a single-stranded RNA virus that belong to the Paramyxoviridae family, it is also closely related to the viruses that result in rinderpest and measles. Distemper virus causes a wide range of clinical signs and symptoms in canines. These include, anorexia, ocular discharge, dermatitis (urticae), conjunctivitis, erythema and lymphadenopathy. Infection has been associated with pulmonary interstitial pneumonia in dogs and other canines. Affected animals may experience secondary infections such as bacteremia or pyothorax. In the late stages of disease when distemper virus is replicating in the lungs, there may be extensive necrosis of lung tissue with fluid accumulation. There have been reports of distemper being detected during necropsies performed on horses that died suddenly.

Clinical signs of CDV are variable and include respiratory distress, congestion, edema and pulmonary edema. On the right side of the thorax or on one or both sides of the neck, lung lesions were frequently discovered. In some instances a left lateral cervical lymph node enlargement was noted at necropsy with no evidence of a cause other than possible a distemper viral infection as determined through serologic investigations. In order to prevent canine distemper, puppies need to be vaccinated at 6-8 weeks of age and then continue to have a “booster shot” every 2-4 weeks until reaching 16 weeks of age. The whole course of vaccination program needs to be undertaken, otherwise the vaccination will not provide any protection from the virus. Canine distemper is a highly infectious and deadly virus that affects various species.


CDV IgG ELISA kit is a method for analysing IgG antibodies against canine distemper virus (CDV) in plasma or serum.

– Quantitatively (End Point Titer):
(i). < 30: No antibodies found.
(ii). 90 – 270: Antibodies found, probably shedding CCV, retest in 3 months.
(iii). > 810: High titer of antibodies found in recovered diseased animals. Diseased animal (suggestive for CDV). Healthy animal (retest in 3 months).

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.
