Canine distemper virus monoclonal antibodies
ViroStat has released a new set of monoclonal antibodies specific to the nucleocapsid of the canine distemper virus. Select antibody pairs can be used for the detection of the virus by immunoassay methods including IFA and ELISA.
Canine distemper virus infects numerous wild and domestic animal species including dogs, cats, wolves and coyotes. The symptoms of this infection are system-wide affecting the respiratory, gastrointestinal and nervous system.
This virus is related to the viruses that cause measles and mumps and is extremely contagious via aerosols and body fluids. Especially vulnerable are puppies and non-vaccinated adults.
More information and a downloadable data sheet for these new antibodies are available on the ViroStat website.
