Deer Population Control (Non-Lethal)
Anti-PZP Antibody Titer Testing

This article is a reprint from the Science and Conservation Center

The SCC also has the capability to measure the blood concentrations (titers) of anti-PZP antibodies in various taxon groups. Currently, the Center has the capapbility to measure antibody titers in equids (the horse family), cervids (the deer family), bovids (the cow family), and ovids/caprtids (sheep/goat families). The measurement of antibody titers is useful in assessing the value of new adjuvants, altered doses or timing of booster inoculations of PZP, or efficacy in new species. Costs are approximately $20/assay (see Deigert et al. 2003; Lyda et al. 2005).
