Re: M. bovis Ab's?
DAKO Corporation sells a polyclonal (rabbit) antibody to Mycobacterium
bovis (#B0124). I use it for immunohistochemical staining of
formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissues. It is not specific for M.
bovis; it labels several (if not all) species of mycobacteria. Their
telephone number is (800) 566-6655 and their website is:

Any of the veterinary folks out there know of a source for an Elisa kit
to Mycobacterium bovis or in lieu, antibodies to said bacterium?
I'm also looking for a commercial source for "purified protein
derivative" (PPD) for M. bovis.
My friend wishes to innoculate inexperienced cows (ie M. bovis
negative) with the PPD and then measure their immunoreactivity by
an Elisa method.
Thanks in advance.
