Mycoplasma bovis antibody

Interpretation of Mycoplasma Bovis ELISA Results serum/plasma)
S/P% < 60% = Negative
S/P% >/= 60% = Positive

Maternal immunity may result in positive antibody levels up to 6 months old.



Interpretation of Mycoplasma Bovis ELISA Results (milk)
S/P% < 30% = Negative
S/P% >/= 30% = Positive

Positive bulk milk results suggest exposure in the adult milking cows but do not give any indication of the timing of that exposure.

It is possible to have a negative bulk milk result and active infection in the young stock, so we would suggest screening calves over 6 months old for Mycoplasma bovis antibodies if further investigation is required.
