Competitive ELISA kit for the detection of anti-pr-E antibodies in multiple species.
The monoclonal antibody used in the kit cross-reacts with other Japanese Encephalitis viruses and the tick-borne encephalitis virus.
- Highly sensitive and specific detection of WNV antibodies
- Applicable to multiple species, including horses, birds and others. For research use only on human samples: see References (*).
- Rapid and convenient protocol, with ready-to-use reagents and results in just over 2 hours
