PCR detection of Bucella canis

A realtime PCR for the direct detection of Brucella canis is now available at LABOKLIN. Canine brucellosis is a contagious infection caused by the gram-negative bacterium Brucella canis. The disease is characterized by abortion and infertility in females, epididymitis, orchitis and testicular atrophy in males, and occasionally diskospondylitis, osteomyelitis and uveitis. Sample material: swabs without […]

PCR detection of Equine Coronavirus (ECoV)

A realtime PCR for the direct detection of equine coronavirus is now available at LABOKLIN. Especially in adult horses and during cold weather months, ECoV is associated with anorexia, lethargy, fever, changes in fecal character (diarrhea is not routinely seen), and mild colicy-like signs. Sample material: faeces

NEW! SDMA (Symmetric dimethylarginine)

Chronic kidney disease as well as the early detection in the creatinine blind zone is still a big issue in small animal practice. The protein-creatinine ratio indicates the increased excretion of protein before the creatinine retention. A new parameter, SDMA (symmetric dimethylarginine), originates from the degradation of muscle cells and is excreted exclusively via the […]

FIV-PCR: faster confirmation of positive antibody titres is now possible

In addition to our quantitative FIV-PCR (partnerlab, test duration: 1-2 weeks, including provirus load for therapy control), you have now the opportunity to request our new qualitative FIV-PCR (inhouse PCR, test duration: 1-3 working days, no provirus load). With this PCR, a confirmation of positive FIV antibody titres is now possible within 1-3 working days.

Uudet tutkimukset hyödyntävät PCR-tekniikkaa

Koirien ranskalainen sydänmato (Angiostrongylus vasorum) Reaaliaikaisen PCR:n avulla koirien infektio voidaan diagnosoida varhaisessa vaiheessa. Tutkittavat näytteet: EDTA-verinäyte, keuhkoputkesta saatu lima, kudokset (keuhkot, aivot) Tuloksien odotusaika: 2-5 työpäivää. Koirien sirkovirus Metodi: reaaliaikainen PCR. Tutkittavat näytteet: virtsa, EDTA-verinäyte, kudos (maksa, imukudos, munuaiset). Tuloksien odotusaika: 2-5 työpäivää. Kanien Treponema paraluiscuniculi (kanien kuppa) Metodi: reaaliaikainen PCR. Tutkittavat näytteet: kudos […]

Differentiation of dermatophytes via PCR

The LABOKLIN dermatophyte PCR has been further developed and improved now allowing differentiation of the dermatophyte species after a positive PCR result. The new PCR is able to detect and differentiate the following dermatopyhtes: Microsporum (M.) canis, M. gypseum, M. persicolor, Trichophyton (T.) mentagrophytes, and T. equinum. Sample material: hairs (hair roots!), skin scrapings, skin […]
