Aujeszky’s disease, known as Pseudorabies, is a potentially fatal disease in swine and is particularly dangerous to piglets. It affects the nervous system. Signs of the disease in piglets include shivering, loss of coordination and weak hind legs. It is spread primarily through physical contact of the nose and mouth.
Sample Type: Serum or plasma | Test Time: Short protocol (less than 4 hours) or long protocol (overnight incubation)
The SERELISA® PRV gI Ab Mono Blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is designed to detect anti-envelope glycoprotein (gI) antibodies of pseudorabies virus (PRV) associated with Aujeszky’s disease in swine. Positive serum or plasma samples correspond to either infected pigs or pigs vaccinated with a PRV vaccine (gl+) while negative samples correspond to noninfected pigs, possibly vaccinated with a deleted PRV vaccine (gl-).
