Lately, we’ve noticed increased interest in VMRD’s Johne’s Disease Antibody Test Kit, a product intended for detection of antibodies to Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) antigen in bovine sera by ELISA. In the US alone, Johne’s Disease affects approximately 70% of dairy herds1 yet has no effective vaccine, making accurate diagnostic testing pivotal to management efforts. In many cases, we can suggest an off-the-shelf product from VMRD. However, in situations where a product has not yet been developed, we never hesitate to mention VMRD’s range of service offerings.
