The Anaplasma Antibody Test Kit is a competitive, enzyme-linked, immunosorbent assay (cELISA) designed to provide results which will give guidance about the presence of Anaplasma infection in cattle. Sample serum antibodies to Anaplasma inhibit the binding of horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-labeled monoclonal antibody to the Anaplasma antigen coated on the plastic wells. Binding, or lack of binding, of the HRP-labeled monoclonal antibody conjugate is detected by the addition of enzyme substrate and quantified by subsequent color product development. Strong color development indicates little or no blockage of HRP-labeled monoclonal antibody binding and therefore the absence of antibodies to Anaplasma in the sample serum. Weak or no color development due to inhibition of the monoclonal antibody binding to the antigen on the solid phase indicates the presences of Anaplasma antibodies in the sample serum.
Detection of antibody specific to Anaplasma marginale, A. ovis, and A. centrale in bovine serum by cELISA. For Veterinary Use Only - Use Only as Directed
