CSA: Simian TB

Colony Surveillance Assays (CSA) are adjunct antibody tests to supplement your Tuberculosis screening program in NHPs.

What makes the CSA: Simian TB assay different?

Patented Biomarkers.

Refined Antigens

Epitope mapping revealed the smallest portion of TB-specific antigens that NHPs develop antibodies to during active and latent infection.

Highest Sensitivity

Other serological tests use whole recombinant proteins covering similar targets, but rely on complex analysis to reduce false positive results but also decreasing sensitivity.

Exceptional Specificity

Tens of thousands of TB negative samples have been used to validate this antibody test resulting in exceptional specificity.

Utilized Worldwide

From National Primate Centers in North America and Europe to commercial breeding operations, the CSA: Simian TB test is used across the globe.

Multiplex Analysis

Our patented biomarkers cover the top epitopes including ESAT-6 and CFP-10, using multiple markers to determine a single result.

Easy to Use

CSA assays are simple to perform with basic lab tools. All you need is a kit and an IAN scanner and you are ready.

CSA: Simian TB In Use

When a case of TB was discovered in one institution, the CSA: Simian TB was used to identify infected animals.

Entire cohort had 9+ negative TST tests
Identified active and latent disease
Utilized in conjunction with TST to return animals to study
Pre-quarantine screening saves time and money
