This Bovine Leukemia Virus Antibody Test Kit is an enzyme-linked, immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Sample serum antibodies bind to BLV gp51 molecules attached to the plastic wells of the microtiter plate. Binding of these serum antibodies is detected by reaction with horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-labeled affinity-purified goat antibodies to bovine immunoglobulins. Attached HRP-labeled antibodies are detected by addition of enzyme substrate and quantitated by subsequent blue color product development. Strong color development indicates the presence of antibody to BLV gp51 in the sample serum. Very weak or no color development indicates the absence of antibody to BLV gp51 in the sample serum.
