Mouse antibody production (MAP) testing requires about 25 x 106 cells.
Three groups of mice will be inoculated:
1) Cell suspension undiluted
2) Cell suspension diluted 1:5
3) Controls which are sham inoculated with PBS
Each mouse will be inoculated by the intraperitoneal and intranasal routes. The mice are examined once a day for 28 days for signs of disease or mortality.
Twenty-eight days after inoculation, the test animals and the control animals will be bled. The test sera and control sera are tested for antibody.
NOTE: PCR testing is also available upon request.
The standard panel includes testing the following agents:
- Parvovirus NS-1
- REO 3
- GDVII (TMEV)
- K Virus
- EDIM (Rotavirus)
- (M. Pulmonis [culture]/serology)
o The panel can be expanded, as an option, to include the following:
o Expanded LCM testing can also be provided as an option.
