ID Screen® Capripox Double Antigen Multi-species

Double Antigen ELISA for the detection of antibodies against capripoxviruses including lumpy skin disease virus (LSDV), sheeppox virus (SPPV) and goatpox virus (GTPV) in serum or plasma from cattle, sheep, goats or other susceptible species

  • First commercially-available ELISA which allows for the detection of Lumpy Skin Disease antibodies
  • Very high specificity in CPV-free regions (>99.7%). Should not cross-react with parapox viruses
  • Detects antibodies against LSDV either in vaccinated or infected animals. At least equivalent sensitivity compared to IPMA and improved sensitivity compared to VNT (detection of antibodies as of 20 dpv up until at least 7 months post-vaccination)
  • Easy to handle, with ready-to-use reagents, and allows for high throughput screening without requiring high level containment facilities
