Dear Dr Ozbel,
 We are doing diagnosis of visceral leishmaniasis in dogs here in 
Noth-East Brazil with the FML-ELISA assay. It shows to be highly 
sensitive, specific and predictive on development of human and 
canine Kala-azar. It would be interesting to test it on sera of your 
animals. Since we prepare the ELISA assay in our lab, I am concerned 
about the possible differences in changing the protocol and any 
alterations due to transport conditions. Could you possibly send to 
us the sera double blind by FEDEX?. We could test them here rapidly
Looking forward to hear from you soon
I remain
Yours sincerely
