ID Screen® Schmallenberg virus Indirect Multi-species

Indirect ELISA kit for the detection of anti-Schmallenberg virus (SBV) antibodies in ruminant serum and plasma from multiple species, including cattle, sheep and goats.

Please contact IDvet for use on other species.


  • The first commercial ELISA for SBV serology
  • High sensitivity and specificity in external validation studies
  • Approved by the ANSES (France) and FLI (Germany) laboratories
  • Automatable and therefore suited to high throughput testing
  • Screening and confirmation formats available
