ID.Vet® is pleased to announce the launch of its antigen capture ELISA for Avian Leukosis, which offers:

  • Improved Analytical Sensitivity with respect to other commercial ELISAS
  • A wide spectrum of Detection. The kit may be used to detect all virus subgroups, including new K strain circulating in China

The Avian Leukosis Virus (ALV) infects mainly chickens but also pheasants, partridges and quails. The virus is divided into 11 subgroups according to the nature of the viral envelope proteins, which determine the immune response and host range. Chickens are affected by the A, B, C, D, E, J and K subgroups. Infections with ALV lead to tumors (Lymphoid leukosis) in the liver, spleen, and bursa, and occasionally in the kidneys and sex organs. No vaccine exists to Avian Leukosis, and ELISA is generally used to diagnose the disease.

ID Screen® ALV Antigen Capture is a Sandwich ELISA for  the detection of p27 Antigen of Avian Leukosis Virus in chicken light albumen or cloacal swabs
