Reliable detection of PM antibodies in both chicken and turkey flocks

An ELISA test kit for the detection of PM antibodies in chicken and turkey sera

Expand All
  • Good Specificity and Sensitivity to PM Antibodies1,2
     

    Chicken Sera:
     

    No False Positive Reactions

    • When tested with a monospecific serum panel consisting of National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL) Panel #2 samples.
      • Each sample was tested with 3 replicates per plate and tested in 5 ProFLOK® PM ELISA plates.
    • Another panel of PM specific sera (Types 1-16) from NVSL was used to test the ability of ProFLOK® PM ELISA to detect antibodies to various PM serotypes. ProFLOK® PM ELISA was shown to detect antibodies to the most common PM serotypes, including serotypes 3 and 4.

    Turkey Sera:

    Use Situations:

    Routine PM flock profiling:

    Collect and assay 30 or more serum samples per flock, particularly breeder hen flocks, on a routine basis (i.e., every 4 to 6 weeks).

    PM vaccination evaluation: Randomly collect and assay 30 or more serum samples per flock immediately prior to PM vaccine administration (pre-vaccination) and 14 to 18 days post-vaccination.

    Sampling:

    Serum samples are used for testing.
