The use of genotype 3 antigens makes the test ideally suited for use in swine, as genotype 3 is the genotype which infects pigs (HEV ELISAs for humans use genotype 1 antigens).
- High sensitivity and specificity in swine, thanks to the use of genotype 3 antigens
- Applicable to multiple species, and validated on swine. Please contact IDvet for more information
- Straightforward and rapid, with results in 90 minutes
Method :Indirect ELISA
Species :Swine and other species. Please contact IDvet for more information.
Specimens :Serum or plasma
Coated antigen :Recombinant genotype 3 capsid
Conjugate :Anti-multi-species IgG-HRP conjugate (concentrated 10X)
