During this study a new Immunoperoxidase Monolayer Assay (IPMA) was developed for the detection of antibodies against lumpy skin disease virus (LSDV) in an easy and low tech setting. Using two dilutions (1:50 and 1:300) in a duplicate format, the test was shown to be highly sensitive, specific and repeatable. In comparison to the VNT and a commercial ELISA, the LSDV-IPMA was able to detect the LSDV antibodies earlier in infected, vaccinated and vaccinated/infected animals. The assay is very flexible as it can be easily adapted for the detection of sheeppox or goatpox antibodies and it can b…
