Dog rabies virus IgG ELISA kit is designed to analyse quantitative amounts of IgG antibodies against canine rabies virus (RV) in dog serum or plasma samples. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.
Rabies virus (RV) is known to infect mainly warm blooded species, there are two different forms of it. Paralytic rabies (usually spinal cord infections) and furious rabies (usually brain infections). The virus is found in saliva and this represent the most favoured form of transmission, sporadic cases through aerosol infections have also been discovered. The infection of dogs by rabies virus (RV) in most cases tends to be fatal, carnivores such as; domestic dogs, cats, rodents and bats are known to be responsible transmitting infections to dogs and humans. The following procedure relies of the use of a semi purified virus which is designed as a rapid screen in order to detect rabies antibodies in dog plasma and serum samples.

– Canine Rabies Virus (RV) IgG: ELISA
– Positive control should be ≥ 1.250 OD units (450nm).
– Negative control should be lower than 0.500 OD units (450nm) and give an endpoint titer of ≤ 50.
– Qualitative (Positive – Negative): Sample is scored positive if the OD is higher than the OD of the negative control plus 0.100.
– Quantitative (End Point Titer): End-point titer of the sample is the dilution which gives an extinction just above the OD of the negative control plus 0.150.
