Development and preliminary assessment of a polyclonal antibody-based enzyme immunoassay for the detection of Tritrichomonas foetus antigen in breeding cattle.

Abstract

More sensitive tests are required for the diagnosis of Tritrichomonas foetus infection in cattle and an antigen-detecting enzyme immunoassay (EIA) has been applied to this purpose. An affinity purified immunoglobulin fraction obtained from rabbits immunised with cultured T. foetus served as both capture antibody and as biotinylated indicator antibody. While… (More)
