Sensitive to the Threat

Mycobacterium paratuberculosis (MAP)infection, also known as Johne's disease,costs dairy producers up to $250 peranimal per year1and the industry up to$250 million annually. This chronic enteritisis present in over 68% of U.S. dairy herds,causing decreased milk production, diminishedfertility and a shortened production life.3The IDEXX MAP Ab Test now offers improvedsensitivity to help you detect and control MAP.

More Sensitive Than Competitor A

IDEXX tested milk and serum samples using both the IDEXX MAP Ab Test and a competitor ELISA (Competitor A). The IDEXX test demonstrated superior sensitivity and excellent specificity compared to Competitor A.
