Monitoring of BHV-1 vaccinated calves comparing an indirect and a Blocking elisa with the neutralization assay

The aim of this study was to compare antibody response in vaccinated calves using an indirect ELISA (CIVTEST® BOVIS IBR), a blocking ELISA (CIVTEST® BOVIS IBRgB) and a neutralization assay (SN) for serological monitoring of vaccination programmes against BHV-1.

Summary

Results showed that CIVTEST® BOVIS IBR ELISA kit is better at quantifying antibody levels, whereas CIVTEST® BOVIS IBRgB kit is better at distinguishing positive animals. Depending on the purpose of your serological study, you should choose the better kit: indirect ELISA for quantifying antibodies and blocking ELISA for epidemiological studies.
