C. TANGIBLE OUTCOMES

I. Technologies, products & processes developed

  • Monoclonal antibody production by hybridoma technology.
  • Monoclonal antibody-based ELISA kit for estimation of immune status of cattle and buffaloes vaccinated against H.S.
  • Monoclonal antibody-based latex agglutination test (called TE-LAT) for detection of Trypanosoma evansi antigen (‘surra’ infection) in animals (In collaboration with Dr S. S. Chaudhri, Sr. Scientist, Regional Research Station, Uchani).
  • Phage display technology for production of recombinant single-domain antibody of Indian desert camel.
  • Phage display library of single-domain antibodies (>107 clones) of E. coli lipopolysachharide-immunized Indian desert camel.
  • E. coli LPS-binding single-domain antibody clones (n=24) selected from the phage display library mentioned above.
  • Staphylococcus aureus β-hemolysin-neutralizing single-domain antibody clone selected from the phage display library mentioned above.
  • DIVA test (3A-NSP antigen based ELISA) as per OIE protocol in collaboration with Freidrich Loeffler Institute, Greifswald, Insel Riems, Germany for differentiation of FMD infected and vaccinated animals (DIVA strategy).

II. Services offered:

  • Antibiotic sensitivity testing of clinical bacterial isolates
  • Latex agglutination test for diagnosis of Trypanosoma evansi infection in domestic animals (Developed in collaboration with Department of Veterinary Parasitology)
  • Indirect ELISA test for hemorrhagic septicemia antibodies in buffalo sera
  • PCR –based diagnostic tests for hemorrhagic septicemia in bovines

D. FUTURE DIRECTIONS

  • Smart Class-rooms for CAFT activities
  • Modernization and Accreditation of laboratories
  • Microbiological repository
  • Trainers’ trainings
