*Not yet approved in the following states: CA, GA, NM & RI
SNAP BVD Test Kit, by Idexx, is a rapid enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test for detection of BVDV antigen in immunotolerant, persistently infected (PI) cattle using ear notch tissue. It can be used in the clinic or at the farm to test all new introductions to the herd—newborn calves, replacements, or bulls—in order to prevent the spread of BVDV. The device will develop color on the flow matrix when used and you can read the results on the flow matrix without any other equipment. Positive results from this assay are valid for calves of any age.

Sensitivity and Specificity







Technical Specs:
Large Ear-Notch Test

 


1.
Dispense 1.5 mL of conjugate into a vial containing a single ear notch.
 

2.
Cap vial and swirl gently to soak ear notch.

 


3.
Incubate vial at room temperature (18–30°C) for at least 10 minutes (range: 10-60 minutes).

 


4.
Pour liquid contents of the vial into the sample well of the SNAP® device.

 


5.
When color first appears in the activation circle (may take 15–60 seconds), press firmly to activate. You will hear a distinct “snap.” Note: some liquid may remain in the sample well.

Serum Test

 Heater block (available through IDEXX) required for use with serum sample. Please contact your IDEXX representative for more information.

 


1.
Dispense 3 drops (150 µL) of serum sample into a sample tube; using a fresh pipette, dispense 6 drops (200 µL) of conjugate into the sample tube.

 


2.
Cap the sample tube and gently invert 3–5 times to mix.

 


3.
Place the sample tube in a heater block and incubate for 10 minutes at 45°C (range: 10–20 minutes).

 

4.
Pour the contents of the sample tube into the sample well of the SNAP device.

 


5.
When color first appears in the activation circle (may take 15–60 seconds), press firmly to activate. You will hear a distinct “snap.” Note: some liquid may remain in the sample well.

 


6.
Wait 10 minutes, then read results (range: 10–15 minutes).


Interpreting Results





Extended Information:
All test kits come in packs of 10 tests with 1 bottle of conjugate, and a complimentary accessory pack for the Large Ear Notch sample type (sample ≥ 1 cm on a side). The test can also be run on serum and/or Small Ear Notch samples (sample is 2-3 mm in width). Serum samples and Small Ear Notch samples require a different protocol than Large Ear Notch samples. IDEXX recommends that all customers run the Large Ear Notch Protocol because it is faster and easier. The Large Ear Notch Protocol requires one SNAP BVD 10-Test Kit (10 tests, 1 bottle conjugate) and one Large Ear Notch (LEN) Accessory Pack (10 pipettes, 10 sample tubes). The Small Ear Notch Protocol or the Serum Protocol requires the Small Ear Notch (SEN)/Serum Accessory Pack (16 sample tubes, 20 pipettes).
