Pictor logoThe PictArray™ M. bovis ELISA is Pictor’s new microarray that has been developed and will be manufactured on the M2-Automation Dispensing Technology. Pictor’s development goal is to create a more sensitive M. bovis test than the currently used ELISA through multiplexing which allows the use of multiple antigens thus increasing sensitivity. Validation studies in New Zealand and Australia are expected to be completed in April 2022. This is one of many new multiplex developments at Pictor Ltd.
