Feline VacciCheck(R) - Panleukopenia, Herpes Virus & Calici Virus IgG Antibody Test Kit

Discover a world of superior pet protection, with VacciCheck. All the information you need on the only “in-house” titer test  that tests for all 3 core vaccine diseases and compares favorably to Gold Standards.

The Feline VacciCheck Antibody Test Kit is designed to determine cat serum IgG antibody titer to Feline Panleukopenia Virus (FPLV), Feline Herpes Virus (FHV) and Feline Calici Virus (FCV). The main purpose of this kit is to provide a useful tool for assessing immunity status of cats concerning these three pathogens. As such, it can either determine the IgG titer before and following vaccination or the validation of immunity.

 

Background

Feline Panleukopenia Virus (FPLV), Feline Herpes Virus (FHV) and Feline Calici Virus (FCV) are recognized as important causes of illness and death in cats. Kittens are most susceptible to FPLV, FHV and FCV, especially after weaning when protective Maternally Derived Antibody (MDA) levels decrease. Sometimes MDA may actually interfere with vaccinations that are given for immunization. In many countries, vaccination programs have significantly curtailed, but not eliminated the incidence of these diseases. Thus, FPLV, FHV and FCV continue to be of great clinical concern among veterinarians worldwide and still present a diagnostic challenge.

 

Test Principle

The ImmunoComb test is a modified ELISA, which can be described as an enzyme labeled "dot assay", that detects antibody levels in serum, plasma or whole blood. The kit contains all the necessary reagents for developing 3 the test. Results for the IgG FPLV, FHV and FCV tests are obtained within 23 minutes

 

What VacciCheck does (key test indications):

  1. Confirm puppy/kitten immunity following completion of an initial core vaccination course
  2. Manage disease outbreaks in animal shelters by enabling proper immunization
  3. Establish the protection status of newly adopted adult dogs/cats with unknown core vaccination history
  4. Assess adult dog/cat core disease immunity, enabling appropriate booster scheduling

 

Sampling:

5μL of plasma or serum, or 10μL of blood is used for testing
