Before a blood donation can enter the blood bank, it is tested for diseases that can be transmitted by blood, including HIV and viral hepatitis.
AbD Serotec’s virology range not only includes antibodies to Hepatitis and HIV, that can be used in immunodiagnostic tests for blood screening, but also performance-guaranteed antibodies to other key viral agents such as Epstein-Barr Virus, Herpes Simplex Virus, Rotavirus, Rubella Virus, Varicella and all the common respiratory viruses.
All these antibodies are available in bulk quantities and because they are supported by unrivalled technical support and our ISO quality system, they are ideal for immunodiagnostic assay development.
We offer a range of antibodies and recombinant proteins specific to hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C suitable for many applications, including matched antibody pairs.
We offer a range of performance-guaranteed antibodies and recombinant proteins specific to HIV-1 and HIV-2, HIV envelope glycoprotein gp120, and the for p24 antigen.
The use of some diagnostic assays has become particularly important following the implementation of screening programs in a number of countries to identify pregnant women at risk of feto-maternal infections caused by hCMV (Cytomegalovirus) , the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii , Rubella and Herpes Simplex Viruses. Infection with ToRCH organisms frequently causes only mild maternal infection, but can result in serious consequences for the fetus.
We offer high-quality antigens to hCMV, HSV, Toxoplasma gondii and Rubella virus.
