Turkey Coronavirus ELISA

The West Lafayette ADDL is now offering an ELISA test for Turkey Coronavirus (TCV).  This test has been validated to have the same accuracy as the IFA test offered at the Heeke ADDL (formerly SIPAC) in Dubois, Indiana.  The cost will be $1.50 per sample.  A minimum of six samples is required per flock for testing; however, to better assess the flock coronavirus status, a large number of samples is encouraged.  The turnaround time generally should be 24 hours after receipt of the serum samples.  Please be sure to identify the owner’s name, address, phone and fax numbers, as well as flock identification.  Samples should be submitted on an ADDL accession form to the Animal Disease Diagnostic Lab, 1175 ADDL, PurdueUniversity, W. LafayetteIN47907 by next day air (cold packs are sufficient refrigeration).  If you have any questions concerning TCV serology, please contact Dr. T.L. Lin or Ms. Donna Schrader at 765-494-7440.

  Other tests for TCV available at ADDL, West Lafayette, include virus isolation, electron microscopy and IFA.  The costs and guidelines for the submission of these tests remain the same.  Please call ADDL accession desk (765-494-7440) for more information.
