  • 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

    Use Situations:

    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 PLUS ELISA 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.

    Performance1:

    Excellent Correlation with indirect IFA Test

    Excellent Sensitivity

    Excellent Specificity

    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
