FPV ELISA Kit (Feline Panleukopenia Virus)

Full Name: FPV ELISA Kit (Feline Panleukopenia Virus)
Reactivity: Feline
Sample Type: Serum, Plasma
Sensitivity: Qualitative


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). FPV can be passed from cat to cat through close contact with contaminated surfaces or feces or through contact with an infected animal’s blood, urine, saliva and other secretions. Cats with FIP typically show signs of pain and a reluctance to move. Other common symptoms include discharge from the eyes, nose, mouth or genitals that may spread to the paws and tail. In some cases, cats can lose their appetite and start vomiting. Treatment usually consists of antibiotics but sometimes blood transfusions are necessary to offset low white blood cell counts (a hallmark sign). The prognosis for cats is good .This condition is fairly common in young cats with a history of being at risk for exposure to ticks.

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 faeces, 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.


FPV ELISA kit is intended for analysing antibodies against feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) in samples of serum or plasma.


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.

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.


– Positive control should give an OD (450nm) > 1,000.
– Negative control must give an OD (450nm) lower than 0,300.
– A sample is considered positive when the measured extinction is 0.150 higher than the OD of the negative control.

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

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.
