Note: The name of this product has changed. It was previously called PRIOCHECK SALMONELLA AB BOV.
The PrioCHECK™ Salmonella Antibody bovine ELISAs are the first commercially available tests for monitoring and surveillance of Salmonella infections in cattle herds. The tests allow fast and versatile detection of anti-Salmonella antibodies in serum, plasma, and milk samples. Both ELISAs follow an easy 4-step protocol. Results are available within 150 min, making the tests highly suitable for screening and monitoring programs for bovine salmonellosis.
The PrioCHECK™ Salmonella Antibody ELISA Dublin detects S. dublin more specifically, but not exclusively. Some cross-reactivity with S. typhimurium can occur. Both tests are suitable for large-scale screening of serum, plasma, and (bulk) milk samples.
Test samples are incubated in plates coated with the purified Salmonella antigen at room temperature. Plates are then washed and an anti-bovine antibody labeled with an enzyme that generates a color signal is added. The signal is measured and if color develops the sample is positive for anti-Salmonella antibodies. Color intensity is directly related to the amount of anti-Salmonella antibody present in the test sample.
