We are excited to introduce a new BVD screening tool for cattle that provides a more cost effective solution for screening large numbers of animals than existing PCR or ELISA options. BVD PCR results are given for each pool of samples, providing a quick and easy screen, and if further investigation to identify PI animals is required (pools are up to 23 samples in size)*. The benefits of this new PCR screening test include:
· Suitable for screening dry-stock
· All animals tested must be >35 days old
· Suitable as a tool for BVD investigations in milking animals reducing the requirement for individual testing
· A much more cost effective option for large numbers of animals
Cost of testing: Please contact your local laboratory or Territory Manager.
Turn-around time: 5 working days for pooled result*
Samples required: A minimum of 30 red top samples.
Simply quote BVDPCRPR or “pooled only” on your submission form to take advantage of this new testing regime. If you require further information, simply contact your local laboratory or Territory Manager and we’ll be happy to help.
Note: * Individual testing on positive pools will be carried out only on request by serum Ag ELISA and will be charged per our current price list.
