The only OIE certified ELISA for the detection of antibodies against Newcastle Disease virus available in the market.

  • Highly consistent alternative for testing to Hi
  • Strong correlation with HI positive samples combined with superior sensitivity to various vaccine strains

For successful interpretation of results in an environment where it is important to differentiate between vaccine induced antibodies and field infections, reliable and reproducible results are vital. The strong kit consistency over different batches together with the use of reference controls will ensure this.

The Newcastle Disease Virus Antibody test kit measures the antibodies to the Newcastle Disease Virus (Avian Paramyxovirus type 1) in the serum of chickens.

The Newcastle Disease Virus Antibody test kit is used for:

  • Screening for field infections
  • Monitoring success of vaccination
  • Monitoring flock status over time during the production period

Guidelines for Interpretation available for negative flock screening and most common live vaccination programs, please ask your BioChek representative for details.

One of the biggest challenges when monitoring for certain diseases or when checking vaccination responses is to give meaning to the titers that appear from diagnostic tests.
Titers can be expected to be positive due to vaccines used, presence of the pathogen or a combination of both.
Therefor, monitoring for a certain disease challenge and/or vaccination response can be hard since these titer ranges are often unknown when setting up a monitoring program.

BioChek developed interpretation guidelines to help with negative flock screening and common live and/or inactivated vaccination programs. These guidelines are based upon results obtained form the field and are of great value for and highly appreciated by customers around the globe.
Over time the baseline ranges can be narrowed and/or adapted according to local situation.

It’s not always feasible to take immediate actions after obtaining a reliable result outside the expected titer range.
Analysis over time is important, but can be challenging. The BioChek II Software is a one-off monitoring system allowing for safe (online) storing of data. Reporting in various understandable graphic formats makes analysis of obtained results over a longer period easy.
With the BioChek II Software it’s possible to undertake appropriate actions to improve and maintain a good flock health status.
