Catalog #:  VS49
Source Antibody:  The monoclonal antibody PPV-5B (MAb PPV-5B) used in this test  were developed by Dr. Mariano Cambra, Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Agrarias (IVIA), in Spain. The MAb PPV-5B was evaluated against the Bordeaux collection of PPV isolates at UMR Genomique, Development et pouvoir Pathogene, Virologie-IBVM, INRA.
Test Format:  DAS ELISA

Specificity:  This test system detects all isolates or strains of PPV including PPV-C (cherry isolate) PPV-M, PPV-D, PPV-EA, and PPV-W. There is no cross reaction with healthy plant tissues.  Background is very low on all of the negative control wells.

Reactivity:  . Reaction of the ELISA is very strong.  Optical Density at 405nm  is in a range of 1.100 - 2.900 depending  on the virus titer in the samples tested.

Sensitivity:  Sensitivity of the ELISA is relatively high.  The virus can be consistently detected in infected plant leaf tissues diluted  at 1:810 - 1:2430.

Application:  The test can be used to detect PPV in leaves, fruit, and flowers and other tissues of infected stone fruit plants.
