ViroStat has released a set of new monoclonal antibodies to canine parvovirus (CPV). These antibodies form pairs to detect the virus by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and also function in immunofluorescent antibody (IFA) staining.
Canine parvovirus (CPV) is a highly contagious virus that causes a gastrointestinal infection in dogs. Puppies are very susceptible resulting in high mortality rates. The virus is transmitted through faeces and can survive in the environment in the dried state on clothing, shoes and caging for long periods of time. Treatment is supportive care.
