Mycobacterium tuberculosis ELISA assays

May 2018 - Wageningen Bioveterinary Research would like to inform you that as of 1 May 2018, our laboratory will no longer offer Mycobacterium (para)tuberculosis ELISA assays.

The Mycobacterium tuberculosis ELISA bovis (article number MTU01), Mycobacterium tuberculosis ELISA avium/para (MTU04), Mycobacterium tuberculosis ELISA MPB70 (MTU05) and the Mycobacterium paratuberculosis ELISA (MPT06) assays will not be carried out after this date due to the fact that the materials on which the assays are based are no longer available. Because of our current high quality criteria, we have decided to discontinue the tests.

Our laboratory is working on the development of animal species-specific alternatives and we will keep you informed of any news in this area.
