The same antibody we use for resin generation may be utilized to develop a diagnostic kit for its use in the differentiation of infected from vaccinated animals. This product complements the DIVA vaccine that is obtained by the application of our resin in the antigen purification step.

Kit development stages are as follows:

  1. First the essay technique will be determined.
  2. Then comes the medium choise and the reaction conditions.
  3. Kit design and preparation in order to get a simple and easy to do test.
  4. Field testing.
  5. And finally the validation of the method.

The objectives of the kit design are to obtain an in situ diagnostic kit, which does not require to displace the subject and no reactive adding, and it should have the most important characteristic, that it must not involve additional lab equipment nor lab field operations
