FIV Ab/FeLV Ag Test Kit
The Anigen Rapid FIV Ab/FeLV Ag Test Kit is a chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of feline leukaemia virus antigen and feline immunodeficiency virus antibody in feline serum, plasma, or whole blood. The Anigen Rapid FIV Ab/FeLV Ag Test Kit has the letters “T” and “C” as the test line and control line on the surface of the device. Both the test line and the control line in the result window are not visible before any sample is applied.
The control line is used for procedural control and should always appear if the test procedure is performed correctly and the control line test reagents are working. A purple test line will be seen in the result window if there is sufficient Feline Immunodeficiency Virus antibody and/or Feline Leukemia Virus antigen in the sample. Highly selective feline immunodeficiency virus antigens and feline leukaemia virus antibodies are used as capture and detector in the assay. These antigens and antibodies are capable of detecting FIV antibodies and FeLV antigens in feline samples with high precision.

FIV Ab antibody test
A cat in the acute phase of the infection may be antibody negative and rest within 6 to 8 weeks is warranted to establish a diagnosis in cats with a recent history that puts them at risk of exposure.
FeLV Ag test
To completely eliminate any risk to an established household from bringing in a new cat, follow-up testing should be done at least 90 days after initial testing or possible FeLV exposure, as cats may be in the early stages. of the infection at the beginning. time of the first test.
FIV Ab tests should be interpreted with care in kittens less than 6 months of age. Kittens up to 12 weeks of age may have passively acquired anti-FIV antibodies from mothers who are infected or have been vaccinated. If the kittens test positive for IVF, the kitten should be retested after 8-12 weeks. If the FIV is negative, it is unlikely that the kitten is infected. If it’s still positive, you’re probably infected.
