The SVANOVIR BVDV-Ab is a thoroughly validated and field approved ELISA for detecting antibodies to Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Virus (BVDV). Eradication and control programs greatly benefit from the high sensitivity and specificity of analyses for both pooled and individual samples.

Features and benefits:

  • Enables detection of all three genotypes of BVDV: type I, type II and type III (HoBi-like)
  • Extensively validated in the field – utilized in BVDV control programs in Scandinavia, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, UK, etc.
  • Dual functionality – the same assay tests both serum and milk samples (individual and pooled)
  • Semi quantitative test – paired samples used to detect cows pregnant with PI-calves

Note: Confirmation assay: recommended for herds with high prevalence. Screening assay: recommended for herds with low prevalence, in combination with confirmation assay
