Salmonella Abortusovis Test

Microtiter strips coated with S. Abortusovis lipopolysaccharide (LPS) are incubated with collected samples. During this incubation step, anti – S. Abortusovis antibodies bind to the antigen, forming
specific complexes. Antigen-antibody complexes are detected by anti-sheep IgG HRP-conjugated secondary antibody. Revelation step is performed incubating the strips with 2,2’-azino-bis(3-
ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) as chromogen and reading the absorbance values at 405 nm by ELISA microplate reader.

Salmonella enterica spp. enterica serovar Abortusovis (Salmonella Abortusovis) is a Salmonella serovar host-adapted to sheep, which causes infections that are mainly characterized by abortion as a main symptom. The disease develops in the last weeks of pregnancy, and the pathogenic mechanisms involved have not yet been understood. In the areas endemic for the microorganism, abortion may
occur in up to 50% of the ewes in a flock, usually during the first pregnancy. This high incidence of salmonellosis represents a major threat to the flocks and may result in important economic losses in
regions that depend on shepherding. Salmonella Abortusovis is reportable to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), but outbreaks are uncommonly described outside a few regions, such as southern Europe and Western Asia. Diagnosis is made by culture of placenta, fetus, or uterine discharge.
