AsurDx™ Mycobacterium bovis IFN-γ Test Kit
The AsurDx™ Mycobacterium bovis IFN-γ Test Kit is designed for the detection of interferon gamma (IFN-γ) produced from cell-mediated response to Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) tuberculin PPD (purified protein derivative) in cattle blood. Lymphocytes from cattle not infected with M. bovis do not produce IFN-γ. Therefore, detection of IFN-γ correlates to M. bovis infection. Bovine tuberculosis (bTB), caused by M. bovis, is an important livestock disease in many countries, and its control and eradication is complicated by the lack of sensitive tests as well as the presence of significant wildlife reservoirs. In some countries, the overall incidence of disease in individual dairy herds may approach a morbidity rate of 60-70%.
The AsurDx™ Mycobacterium bovis IFN-γ Test Kit detects IFN-γ in cattle blood. The kit provides a simple, rapid, sensitive, and cost-effective enzyme-based immunoassay (ELISA) screening method.
