  • product details

Competitive ELISA for the detection of anti PPRV nucleoprotein antibodies.

Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is a contagious disease affecting goats and sheep primarily in Africa, the Middle-East and the Indian subcontinent. It is caused by a species of the Morbillivirus genus of viruses. The disease is highly contagious, with approximately 80 percent mortality in acute cases.

In June 2008, the disease invaded Morocco, crossing the natural barrier of Sahara and causing concern that the disease could spread into Europe. 
Serology may be used to identify and control outbreaks. The Kernel® PPR Competition ELISA efficiently detects antibodies directed against the virus nucleoprotein.
