|IDvet is pleased to announce the launch of the first ELISA for the detection of antibodies against the Schmallenberg virus in ruminant serum.|
|Schmallenberg virus (SBV) is the name given to a vector-transmitted orthobunyavirus related to the Shamonda and Akabane viruses, initially reported in November 2011. The disease has caused foetal congenital malformations and stillbirths in cattle, sheep, and goats. The virus has been detected in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Italy and the United Kingdom. Serological testing is essential for disease surveillance and epidemiological studies. While antibodies can be detected by virus neutralization and immunofluoresence, these techniques are time-consuming, difficult to implement for large numbers of samples, and do not offer standardized result interpretation. The ID Screen® Schmallenberg virus Indirect is an accurate, rapid and easy-to-use assay which is automatable and therefore suited to high throughput testing. Recent external validation studies indicate excellent test specificity (99.75%) and high correlation with other serological techniques (98.9% with respect to VNT), making the ID Screen® Schmallenberg virus Indirect ELISA an efficient tool for disease surveillance and epidemiological studies.|
