DFV
DFV Test Moquillo - Distemper
Immunochromatographic device for the detection of the distemper virus specific antigen in canine conjunctival secretion, serum, plasma, nasal discharge, urine or saliva.

Dogs infected with the virus usually have detectable levels of specific antigen.

SAMPLES AND PROCEDURE:
It is possible to use conjunctival secretion, serum, plasma, nasal discharge, urine or saliva. Samples are stable for up to 4 hours at room temperature for up to 2 days at 2-8 ºC and can be kept frozen for longer storage.

Bring all components and samples to room temperature, only if they were kept in the refrigerator.

1.A: Conjunctival secretion, nasal discharge, urine and saliva samples: Collect the sample with the sample collection swab (it is recommended to wet the sample collection swab with saline buffer before). Insert the swab inside the buffer tube and stir for 15 seconds to extract the sample.
1.B: Serum and plasma samples: Open only a corner of the pouch and take out the pipette. Add 2 drops (60 µl) of serum or plasma to the buffer tube using the pipette. Cap the tube and shake for 15 seconds.

2: Remove the device from the pouch and place it on a flat surface. Very important: Keep the device on a flat surface and do not move it until the end of the assay! Add 4 drops (120 µl) of buffer with sample to the sample well (S) using the pipette.

3: Read the results 20 minutes after the addition of the buffer with sample.

 

RESULTS READING:
Positive (+): One coloured band appears on the test area (T) and other on the control area (C). The result is positive although the band colours are weak.
Negative (-): A single coloured band appears on the control area (C).
Not Valid (NV): If no coloured band appears on the control area (C), it is recommended to repeat the assay with a new device.

CONTENTS: 1 sample collection swab, 1 tube with diluent usage instructions and 1 envelope containing device and 1 pepette.

CONSERVATION:
Keep at room temperature below 30ºC. Refrigeration is not needed. Do not freeze. The product is stable until the expiry date indicated in the pouch if kept under adequate conditions. Do not use the product if the pouch is broken or if lines or stains are observed on the strip before using it. Do not store the kit in direct contact with the sun.
