African Swine Fever Antibody ASFV Ab ELISA Kit is used to detect ASF antibody in swine plasma, serum and whole blood.
African swine fever (ASF) is a severe viral disease affecting domestic and wild pigs;More recently (since 2007) the disease has been reported in multiple countries across Africa, Asia and Europe, in both domestic and wild pigs. In 2018 and 2019, ASFV is spreading quickly to Asia, Southeast Asia. In countries like China, Vietnam, etc now ASFV are becoming big threat to local animal farming.
This ASFV antibody ELISA kit is based on sandwich immunoassay to detect P30 protein specific antibodies of ASFV in swine serum / plasma, etc. which only takes 60min to get a visible result. No special instrument required and no extra cost added, which is quite suitable for lab test and field test.
The importance of antibody testing in African swine fever control
In the recent closed Anual Veterinary Diagnostic Conference in Nanjing, Dr. Luis Gimenez Lirola from Iowa State University had a great report on the testing strategies in ASF. prevention and control.
He mentioned that in acute infection of ASF, PCR positive and antibody-negative results were 66%, PCR positive and antibody-positive results were 34%, PCR negative and antibody-positive results were 0%. In subacute infection of ASF, PCR positive and antibody-negative results were 10%, PCR positive and antibody-positive results were 87%, PCR negative and antibody-positive results were 3%. In chronic infection of ASF, PCR positive and antibody-negative results were 2%, PCR positive and antibody-positive were 31%, while PCR negative and antibody-positive results were 67%.
From the research, we can find that in subacute and chronic infection of ASF, PCR negative results do not rule out ASF infection, antibody testing shall still be considered as an important tool for ASF eradication.
