Bovine TB testing solutions


Bovine TB Antibody Rapid Detection

Helps in parallel detection of avian tuberculosis to differentiate environmental tuberculosis and bovine tuberculosis. If only T1 is developed, the test indicates for the presence of antibody against Non-pathogenic Mycobacterium (NTB) or Avian tuberculosis and the result is positive for Avian TB. If the T2 turns positive, it is indicative of positive to Bovine TB.

  • Tests can be used with serum, plasma or whole blood thus helping in onsite testing too.

    Bovine TB Indirect ELISA
  • Ideal 96 tests kit for mass screening of animals for Bovine TB detection
  • Rapid, reliable and still inexpensive diagnostic method.
  • Bovine TB ELISA is a valuable complementary tool in order to identify possible anergic animals that may be acting as reservoirs of TB in the herd, where skit testing is negative .
  • Standardized results: Results are expressed as S/P% ratios using the highly stable positive control included in the kit.
  • Ready to use reagents.
  • Qualitative results within 2 hr 15 mins.
  • 2 level controls provided with the kit for test validation
  • Uses Protein G-HRP conjugate which yields clean and specific signals corresponding to the antigen.

Clinical Significance

Bovine tuberculosis is a major infectious disease among cattles, other farm animals and certain wildlife populations. It results from infection with Mycobacterium bovis and can be transmitted either through respiration or by ingestion. Bovine TB is a chronic disease and it usually takes many months for clinical signs to develop. It is a significant zoonosis that can spread to humans through aerosols and by the consumption of unpasteurized milk or dairy products from infected cows. Avian tuberculosis is a chronic infectious disease characterized by the formation of granulomatous lesions in viscera, a progressive weight loss and death. It is usually encountered sporadically in birds reared in small yards, zoos and is a problem among caged exotic birds. The disease is contagious and spread by contact with infected domestic and wild animals. The detection of infected animals is one of the main factors involved in tuberculosis control and, with some variations, is performed through intradermal tuberculin tests. Nevertheless, skin test-negative animals may be infected and represent an important threat to bovine tuberculosis eradication programs.
