Request for field sera

	I am presently working on the production of baculovirus
expressed animal virus antigens for use in ELISA diagnostics.
The viruses we are working on are the coronaviruses transmissible
gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) and porcine respiratory coronavirus
(PRCV) in addition to the lentiviruses maedi virna virus (MVV) and
caprine arthritis encephalitis virus (CAEV).  The main problem 
that we are having is the availability of positive field sera
to these viruses.  We have only experimental sera for evaluation
purposes.  Because of this I would be grateful  for any sources of
positive field sera for these diseases.  We would be able to provide
an import licence prior to dispatch and cover postage costs.

Any sources of help would be greatly appreciated
