|Abstract||This study evaluated the sensitivity, specificity and positive predictive value/negative predictive value of the CITE ELISA, the first version of the SNAP ELISA, and the revised version of the SNAP ELISA (SNAP ELISA 1 and SNAP ELISA 2, respectively). This study also evaluated a non-commercial version of another popular screening test for failure of passive transfer (FPT), the glutaraldehyde coagulation test (GCT). The results showed that CITE ELISA was unacceptable as a screening test for FPT because of its poor sensitivity and poor NPV. The SNAP ELISA 2 and GCT are more appropriate screening tests, because they have a high sensitivity and NPV. The specificity and PPV of the SNAP ELISA 2 test is better than the GCT..|
