A new sampling format for bovine infectious
diseases ELISA diagnostic in dried blood spots
Bovine infectious diseases antibody
detection (enzootic bovine leucosis, viral diarrhea, infectious
rhinotracheitis) by ELISA in dried blood samples obtained with a new sampling
format on porous membranes was carried out. Several commercial test systems were
used for infection diagnostic. The obtained data were compared with the results
of the analysis of liquid blood serum. ELISA results of dried and liquid
samples were in full concordance. A new sampling format can simplify the
storage and transportation of samples from farms to diagnostic laboratories.
Key words: cattle, enzootic bovine
leucosis, viral diarrhea, infectious rhinotracheitis, ELISA, porous membranes,
dried blood spots.
