Description: USDA-licensed, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) screening test kit for the detection of Chicken Anemia Virus (CAV) antibodies in chicken serum samples.
Antibodies detected to: CAV
Monitoring Pullet and Breeder Flocks:It is important that pullet flocks are CAV antibody positive before going into production. Assay 30 or more randomly collected serum samples per flock. Test pullet flocks initially between 8-14 weeks of age using the ProFLOK® CAV Ab kit. Breeder flocks should also be tested routinely to check the uniformity and level of CAV antibody following vaccination or field exposure.
Monitoring Pullet and Breeder Flocks: Flocks can be monitored at day of age for level and uniformity of CAV maternal antibody. Collect and assay 30 serum samples per flock.
Monitoring CAV vaccinations: Collect and assay 30 serum samples per flock immediately prior to CAV vaccine administration (pre-vaccination) and 4 to 6 weeks post-vaccination.
Sampling: Serum samples are used for testing.
Excellent Correlation with indirect IFA Test
Test Time: Results available in approximately 2 hours.
Packaging:Up to 450 tests (5 plates of 96 wells)
Store test kits at 2ºC – 7ºC (36ºF-45°F) (do not freeze)
Long shelf life of 18 months for easy inventory management
