Laboratory for the Generation of Monoclonal Antibodies

Department of Experimental Animal Facilities and Biorisk Management

For the detection of diagnostically relevant viruses, a series of monoclonal antibodies (mAb) has been developed. The emphasis has been laid on pathogens for which antibodies are not commercially available or available quantities are insufficient. Some of the developed mAbs can be supplied in small amounts to diagnostic and research laboratories. Contracts on the commercial use of mAbs on the basis of licence agreements are also possible.


So far, monoclonal antibodies have been generated which react specifically with the following viruses:

  • AngHV-1: eel herpesvirus 1 (Herpesvirus anguillae, HVA)
  • BRSV: bovine respiratory syncytial virus
  • BTV: bluetongue virus
  • CyHV-3: cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (Koi herpesvirus, KHV)
  • ECV: European catfish virus
  • EHDV: epizootic haemorrhagic disease of deer virus
  • EHNV: epizootic haematopoietic necrosis virus
  • ESV: European sheatfish virus
  • EToV: equine torovirus (Berne virus)
  • FLUAV: avian influenza A viruses
  • IHNV: infectious haematopoietic necrosis virus
  • IPNV: infectious pancreas necrosis virus
  • ISAV: infectious salmon anaemia virus
  • PEV-A: porcine enterovirus A (porcine sapelovirus)
  • PEV-B: porcine enterovirus B, (PEV-9, 10)
  • PTV: porcine teschoviruses
  • RHDV: rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus
  • SuHV-1: suid herpesvirus 1 (Aujeszky virus)
  • SDV: sleeping disease virus
  • SVCV: spring viraemia of carp virus
  • TBEV: tick-borne encephalitis virus
  • VHSV: viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus
  • WBV: white bream virus
