What's New At VMRD
Equine Arteritis Virus Test Kit

This assay offers a rapid and robust alternative to serum neutralization while maintaining excellent correlation with SN.  Sensitivity (SE) and (SP) specificity versus SN were 96% and 99%, respectively, in initial field testing in two AAVLD-accredited laboratories and one OIE reference laboratory.   SE and SP were revised to 98% and 99% based on the consensus of repeated retesting of initial discorrelates in these same independent laboratories.

The assay is currently available in 2-plate kits and has a total run time less than 4 hours. 


Small Ruminant Lentivirus Test Kit 

VMRD is pleased to announce an improvement to our Caprine ArthritisEncephalitis Virus (CAEV) cELISA assay.  The USDA Center for Veterinary Biologics recently approved a name change for the kit from, “Caprine Arthritis-Encephalitis Virus Antibody Test Kit, cELISA,” to, “Small Ruminant Lentivirus Antibody Test Kit, cELISA.”  

As a Small Ruminant Lentivirus (SRLV) kit, it is now USDA-approved not only for detection of antibody to CAEV in goats, but also for detection of antibody to Ovine Progressive Pneumonia Virus (OPPV) in sheep.  Both viruses and species are cited in the kit insert, which may simplify adoption of the kit for OPPV testing in accredited labs.
