Bovine tuberculosis test added to World Organization for Animal Health
IDEXX announces that the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) has added the IDEXX M. bovis Ab Test to its registry of tests. OIE develops and maintains international standards for diagnostic tests and vaccines and this marks the first time the organization has certified an antibody test for the detection of bovine tuberculosis (TB).
Released in 2011, the IDEXX M. bovis test offers a fast, three-hour protocol that delivers objective, quantitative results compatible with typical laboratory data management systems. Its easy-to-use ELISA format requires no specialized training or handling requirements and can be automated for high-volume use. The test also can utilize serum or plasma samples already collected for other disease surveillance purposes.
