A monoclonal blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detection of antibodies to Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in porcine serum has been developed. The monoclonal antibody (mAb) reacts with an M. hyopneumoniae specific epitope on a molecule of approximately 74 kDa. Only sera from M. hyopneumoniae infected pigs were able to block the binding of the(More)
Flow cytometry was investigated for detection of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) in peripheral blood mononuclear leukocytes of persistently infected cattle. The mononuclear leukocytes were purified by sedimentation in a gradient of Ficoll-Paque, fixed, permeabilized, and then labelled by indirect immunofluorescence using biotinylated immunoglobulins from(More)
A monoclonal blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detection of antibodies to Aujeszky's disease virus (ADV) in porcine serum was developed. This ELISA is based on the reaction between virus antigen immobilized in a microdilution plate and a monoclonal antibody (MAb) reactive with a highly stable epitope on a glycoprotein complex, gII, of(More)
Detection of bovine viral diarrhea virus in 143 blood samples by virus isolation in cell culture and flow cytometry was performed. The material included 37 samples later shown to originate from persistently infected cattle. Thirty-three samples were positive by virus isolation, and all 37 samples were positive by the flow cytometric assay.
This paper introduces IndustrySim, a game attempting to combine truly engaging gameplay with state-of-the-art industrial simulation that would suit education and casual gaming alike. We present the concept of the game and then discuss challenges and insights encountered so far regarding the asset management, programming and game design behind its(More)
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was developed for the detection of Aujeszky's disease virus antigen in tissue extracts and in nasal swabs. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay is based on two different monoclonal antibodies with specificity for the gII glycoprotein of Aujeszky's disease virus. Viral antigen was detected in 81 of 93 tissue extracts(More)
