Linnodee Bovine Leptospira Hardjo ELISA Kit


Leptospires of the serovar Hardjo are the major cause of Bovine Leptospirosis. These spiral bacteria travel quickly to the uterus, kidneys and udder where they set up localised sites of infection with devastating consequences to herd fertility and production including:

Agalactia and reduced milk production

The infection can slip quietly into the herd through the introduction of carrier animals often exhibiting no clinical signs of infection. Transmission, principally by the shedding of infected urine poses a risk of infection to other animals and to those who work with cattle. Regular screening is vital to disease detection, surveillance and control. Linnodee has developed a rapid, highly sensitive monoclonal antibody capture ELISA, specific to serovar Hardjo-bovis and serovar Hardjo-prajitno which can quickly and safely detect infection and identify carrier animals.
