Detection Of Antibodies Against Ehrlichia canis
Test applicable to: DogSample: Whole blood, Serum or Plasma
The FASTest EHRLICHIA canis test kit is a rapid immunochromatographic screening test for the detection of anti-Ehrlichia canis antibodies. It can be used with serum, plasma or whole blood up to 28 days after infection. The method employs a unique combination of a specific labelled antigen, which is conjugated on dye particles, and this protein is immobilized to the solid phase membrane.
Fast, Routine Check After Travelling Abroad
As the test sample flows laterally across the membrane, the specific labelled antigen protein binds to the anti-Ehrlichia canis antibodies in the sample. Then, if the sample contains anti- Ehrlichia canis antibodies, the complex binds to the antigen on the solid phase in the TEST window (B) producing a pink-purple line. In the absence of anti-Ehrlichia canis antibodies, there is no line in the TEST window (B). The liquid continues to migrate along the membrane and produces a pink-purple line in the CONTROL window (C) demonstrating that the reagents are functioning properly.
