Diagnostic antibodies and antigens for fish disease testing

Fishes are susceptible to diseases caused by a large number of infectious agents including viruses, bacteria, true fungi, fungal-like microrganisms, other protists, and metazoans. The major impact is on farms that rear young fish where cumulative mortality can reach 90–100%. In addition to direct losses due to mortality, the disease has a negative impact on the breeding of endangered fish stocks, causes restrictions on the movement of infected fish or survivors, and so mortality decreased fish production levels and deformities that occur in the survivors. Therefore, identification of pathogens, prevention and control strategies are important to reduce diseases that causes damage of aquaculture production. Genemedi developed the antigen and antibody to detect the koi herpesvirus disease, infectious salmon anemia, infectious pancreatic necrosis, spring viraemia of carp, viral hemorrhagic septicemia, infectious hematopoietic necrosis, rift valley fever and so on. Detecting the quantity of marker proteins from different samples may benefit from ELISA, Lateral flow immunoassay (LFIA), colloidal gold immunochromatographic assay, Chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA), turbidimetric inhibition immuno assay (TINIA), immunonephelometry and POCT.
