TB

The Enferplex TB assay

Tuberculosis (TB) is a serious disease of warm-blooded animals arising from infection by organisms of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) complex. Mycobacterium bovis is responsible for TB in cattle and other mammals. Cattle, buffalo and bison, are the natural host of M. bovis, but nearly all warm-blooded animals are susceptible to the infection. In fact, compared to other bacteria of the MTB complex, M. bovis has a very broad range of animal hosts. This complicates the control of bovine TB, particularly when the infection becomes self-sustaining in wildlife species, which in turn can become reservoirs of M. bovis for domestic animals.
Enfer Scientific has developed a multi-antigen assay for TB and has optimised the assay for use in Cattle, Goats, Pigs and Wild Boar, Deer, Badger, Camelids (Llamas and Alpacas).
