Feline Leukemia

Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is a contagious retrovirus transmitted between cats by contact with infected saliva, nasal excretions, urine, feces and milk. Persistently viremic carrier cats can be mostly clinically healthy and are a major source of virus transmission. FeLV infection can lead to cancers, blood disorders or an immune deficiency that prevents a cat’s ability to fight against other infections. Clinical signs of FeLV include progressive weight loss, poor coat condition, persistent fever, pale mucous membranes, gingivitis, stomatitis, diarrhea, seizures and other neurological disorders.

ASSURE® FeLV

Sample Type: Anticoagulated whole blood, plasma, serum or saliva | Test Time: 10-25 minutes

ASSURE® FeLV is a test wand enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that detects p27 feline leukemia antigen. The kit detects circulating antigen in anticoagulated whole blood, serum or plasma samples, or can also be used with noninvasive saliva samples using the antibody coated wand. The kit is not affected by FeLV vaccination.

ViraCHEK® FeLV

Sample Type: Anticoagulated whole blood, plasma or serum | Test Time: Approximately 12 minutes

ViraCHEK® FeLV is an ELISA that detects the p27 FeLV antigen. The kit detects circulating antigen in anticoagulated whole blood, serum or plasma samples. The kit is not affected by FeLV vaccination.

WITNESS® FeLV

Sample Type: Anticoagulated whole blood, plasma or serum | Test Time: Approximately 10 minutes

WITNESS® FeLV is a simple, in-clinic Rapid Immuno Migration (RIM™) test that detects the presence of p27 FeLV antigen. The kit detects circulating antigen in anticoagulated whole blood, serum or plasma samples. The kit is not affected by FeLV vaccination.

WITNESS® FeLV-FIV

Sample Type: Anticoagulated whole blood, plasma or serum | Test Time: Approximately 10 minutes

WITNESS® FeLV-FIV allows combined detection of p27 FeLV antigen and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) antibodies in feline whole blood, serum or plasma. The kit is based on Rapid Immuno Migration (RIM™) technology.
