African Swine Fever Virus antigen ASFV Ag Rapid Test Kit is used to detect ASF antigen in swine serum, plasma, 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 is becoming a big threat to local animal farming.
This ASFV antigen rapid test kit is based on lateral flow immunoassay to detect antigen of ASFV in swine serum/plasma/tissue extract, etc. which only takes 10-15min to get a visible result. No special instrument required and no extra cost added, which is quite suitable for lab tests and field tests.
The antibodies used in this kit is a paired monoclonal antibody against ASFV p72 protein. Sensitivity is enhanced by mixed other ASFV specific antibodies.
Note: this kit does not contain any contagious materials, which is not hazardous to human or animal.
