The SARCOPTES-ELISA 2001 PIG is an Enzyme Immunoassay for detecting IgG antibodies to Sarcoptes scabiei var. suis in serum samples from swine.

Sarcoptes scabiei var. suis is the causative agent of sarcoptic mange, one of the most significant ectoparasite in pigs. Infections of Sarcoptes mites are often sub-clinical or chronic in nature, causing morbidity, mortality, decreased fertility and feed ratio in pigs. It ishard to detect by traditional diagnostic methods, particularly in optimal housing and feeding conditions, and in herds of healthy animals. 

The SARCOPTES-ELISA 2001 PIG is able to detect subclinical infections especially common in herds with ideal housing and feeding conditions. The test is designed for monitoring pig herds to certify the absence of sarcoptic mange mites. Usually, only a few animals are infected. It is therefore recommended to test a part of the herd (e. g., 30 of 100 or more sows) for anti-sarcoptic antibodies every six months.

Features and benefits:

  • Method of choice for monitoring and detection of sarcoptes infections in swine
  • High sensitivity of 94% and high specificity of 97% (validated with = 134 characterized pigs known to be either free of sarcotes or infected wit them)
  • Validated and approved in Germany (BGVV-B 335)
