General

Information

Ellie’s BRUCELLA cELISA is a qualitative test based on competitive ELISA technology. Plates are coated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) extracted from Brucella abortus bacteria. Any anti-Brucella antibodies present in the sample will compete with LPS-specific, mouse anti-Brucella monoclonal antibodies on the LPS-specific binding site. Antibodies against LPS are indicative of infection with a smooth Brucella biovar.

The Brucella cELISA can be used for confirmatory or screening testing in vaccinated and non-vaccinated populations. It can also be used as a supplemental tool with the Brucella FPA in mass testing campaigns. The Brucella cELISA is a robust product that is versatile, highly sensitive, and specific. It can test multiple species, including cattle, sheep, and goats.
