(EDS) EGG DROP SYNDROME VIRUS ANTIBODY Test Kit
The EDS ELISA kit will measure the amount of antibody to EDS in the serum of chickens. Microtitre plates have been pre-coated with inactivated EDS antigen. Chicken serum samples are diluted and added to the microtitre wells where any anti- EDS antibodies present will bind and form an antigen-antibody complex. Non-specific antibodies and other serum proteins are then washed away. Anti-chicken IgG labelled with the enzyme alkaline phosphatase is then added to the wells and binds to any chicken anti-EDS antibodies originally bound to the antigen. After another wash to remove unreacted conjugate, substrate is added in the form of pNPP chromogen. A yellow colour is developed if anti-EDS antibody is present and the intensity is directly related to the amount of anti- EDS present in the sample.
