Note: The name of this product has changed. It was previously called PRIOCHECK HEV AB Porcine.

The PrioCHECK® HEV Antibody ELISA is a reliable and fast diagnostic test for monitoring and surveillance of hepatitis E virus in pig herds. The PrioCHECK® HEV Antibody ELISA is the only commercially available ELISA that uses HEV genotype 1 and 3 antigens. The use of genotype 3 antigens—the HEV genotype that has actually been demonstrated to infect pigs—significantly enhances the specificity and sensitivity of the test.

The PrioCHECK® HEV Antibody ELISA is a diagnostic kit based on ELISA technology. It follows a four step protocol consisting of sample preparation, sample incubation, conjugate incubation and detection. Serum or meat juice samples are incubated in an ELISA plate coated with the recombinant HEV antigens 1 and 3. Anti-HEV antibodies present in the sample bind to the antigen. Plates are then washed and an anti-swine antibody labeled with horse radish peroxidase (HRP) is used to detect antibodies bound to the HEV antigen. Color development using tetramethyl-benzidine (TMB) substrate measured optically at a wavelength of 450 nm shows the presence of antibodies directed against HEV.
