IgM Antibody Capture ELISA (MAC) kit for the detection of anti-prE IgM antibodies in horse serum and plasma.
The detection of IgM antibodies indicates recent infection and WNV circulation.
Sensitive and specific detection of WNV IgM antibodies, indicators of recent infection
Rapid and convenient: all reagents are supplied ready-to-use, samples are diluted directly in the plate (no pre-dilutions required), and all reagents may be transported at room temperature and stored at 4°C
Practical: you can easily check that all samples have been correctly deposited because the dilution buffer changes color upon addition of the sera
