Canine Adenovirus: Type 2 (CAV-2)


The Healgen CAV-2 Rapid Test is a chromatoprahic immunoassay kit for rapid, qualitative detection of canine adenovirus 2 (CAV-2) antigens in body secretions, which cause Canine Infectious Tracheobronchitis.

The CAV-2-specific antibody is immobilized onto nitrocellulose membrane. Another layer of CAV-2-specific antibodies are conjugated to 40 nm of colloidal gold particles. This conjugate is placed on polyester or glass pad as a conjugate pad. When the sample is dropped into the sample well on the device, the now soluble conjugate migrates with the sample by passive diffusion and both the conjugate and sample come into contact with the antibodies that are immobilized onto the nitrocellulose. If the sample contains adenovirus antigens, the result is visible within 10 minutes in the form of a red line that develops on the membrane. The solution continues to migrate to encounter a control reagent, thereby producing a red line (control line).
