Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus (CCHFV)

ID Screen® CCHF Double Antigen Multi-species


Double antigen ELISA for the detection of antibodies against Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) in cattle, sheep, goats or other susceptible species, including humans*

*For research use only on human samples






  • The only commercial ELISA for the detection of CCHFV antibodies in multiple species
  • Field-proven, reliable results
    • Excellent specificity (100%) and sensitivity (98.9 %) across multiple species
    • High agreement with VNT, and superior analytical sensitivity with respect to the Immunofluorescence Assay (IFA)
    • Proven absence of cross-reactions with Hazara virus, Dugbe virus, and Nairobi Sheep Disease Virus
  • Convenient and flexible
    • Recombinant-based ELISA means that testing may take place outside of high containment facilities
    • Ready-to-use reagents
