Porcine Pseudorabies gE Antibody (PRV-gE) Test, Home Std Kit With
Qualitative, VETERINARY Porcine Range
The PRV-gE Antibody Rapid Test Cassette is a rapid chromatographic
immunoassay for the qualitative detection of gE antibodies to
Porcine Pseudorabies Virus in serum or plasma.

The PRV-gE Antibody Rapid Test Cassette (Serum/Plasma) is a
qualitative, membrane based immunoassay with a double antigen
system for the detection of gE antibodies to Porcine Pseudorabies
Virus in serum or plasma. The membrane is PRV-gE coated with
recombinant PRV-gE antigens. During testing, antibodies to PRV-gE,
if present in serum or plasma specimen react with PRV-gE antigen
coated colloidal gold particles in the test strip. The mixture then
migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary
action and reacts with recombinant PRV-gE antigens on the membrane
in the test line region. If the specimen contains antibodies to
Porcine Pseudorabies Virus, a colored line will appear in the test
line region indicating a positive result. If the specimen does not
contain Porcine Pseudorabies Virus antibodies, a colored line will
not appear in the test line region indicating a negative result. To
serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in
the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen
has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
How to use?
- Remove the test cassette from the foil pouch and use it as soon as
possible. Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed
within one hour.
- Collect fresh whole blood, and separate serum or plasma from blood
as soon as possible to avoid hemolysis. Do not leave the specimens
at room temperature for prolonged periods. Serum and plasma
specimens may be stored at 2-8 °C for up to 3 days. For long term
storage, specimens should be kept below -20 °C.
- Place the test cassette on a clean and level surface. Hold the
dropper vertically and transfer 2 drop of serum or plasma (approximately 50 μl) to the specimen well (S) of the test
cassette, then start the timer. See illustration below.
- Read the results at 10 minutes. Do not interpret results after 20 minutes.
