AVAILABLE TESTS

BOVINE POLYOMAVIRUS (BPyV) TESTING

STERILITY TESTING

VMRD’s validated 21 day assay for the detection of infectious BPyV is based on growth in bovine cells followed by an IFA detection of infective BPyV using a mono-specific antiserum generated against a BPyV subunit protein.This assay can reliably detect as little as 10-7 MOI (0.2 virions) in test articles.

AVAILABLE TESTS
