Description:

Johne's disease is a slow, progressive, contagious and untreatable bacterial disease that ordinarily infects Cattle, Goat and Sheep. Infected animals maintain a normal temperature but exhibit weight loss and diarrhea. In the later stages of the infection, animals can become weak. Death may occur in some infected animals.

UBRL Livestock Diagnostics offers the Johne's Disease ELISA (enzyme linked immunoassay) Test that is a highly specific and effective method for producers and veterinarians to detect and control Johne's disease. This test method is a quantitative USDA approved ELISA designed to detect the presence of antibody to Mycobacterium paratuberculosis in Blood and Milk.
