Peste des Petits Ruminants Virus (PPRV)

ID Screen® PPR Antigen Capture


Sandwich ELISA for the detection of Peste des Petits Ruminants virus in live animals or for post-mortem diagnosis

This test does not contain any virus particles.






  • Equivalent performance to RT-PCR
  • Improved sensitivity for samples with weak or strong PPRV titres
  • Flexible test for use with a wide variety of matrices, including oral, nasal or rectal swabs as well as tears, tissue samples, gum debris or PBMC
  • Convenient and easy-to-use: microplates are supplied coated in strips of 8 wells
  • Straightforward and rapid protocol, with results in 90 minutes
  • Practical: you can easily check that all samples have been correctly deposited because the dilution buffer changes color upon addition of the sera

Method :

Sandwich ELISA

Species :

Ovine and caprine

Specimens :

Variety of sample types, including oral, nasal or rectal swabs as well as tears, tissue samples, gum debris or PBMC
