(ILT) INFECTIOUS LARYNGOTRACHEITIS ANTIBODY Test Kit
The ILT ELISA kit will measure the amount of antibody to ILT in the serum of chickens. Microtitre plates have been pre-coated with inactivated ILT antigen. Chicken serum samples are diluted and added to the microtitre wells where any anti-ILT antibodies present will bind and form an antigen-antibody complex. Non-specific antibodies and other serum proteins are then washed away. Anti-chicken IgG labelled with the enzyme alkaline phosphatase is then added to the wells and binds to any chicken anti-ILT antibodies originally bound to the antigen. After another wash to remove unreacted conjugate, substrate is added in the form of pNPP chromogen. A yellow color is developed if anti-ILT antibody is present and the intensity is directly related to the amount of anti-ILT present in the sample.
