P0034 - The canine breeding PCR panel includes qualitative
detection and differentiation of the following canine pathogens using
various PCR protocols:
These pathogens can cause sexually
transmitted disease, fertility problems
and abortion/stillbirth/neonatal death in
Testing for these agents prior to breeding is recommended.
are difficult to isolate with routine culture testing (Olsen & Mather,
1978). PCR is a more appropriate methodology than culture for
detection of these organisms.
The Zoologix canine breeding PCR panel is a powerful, cost-effective
diagnostic tool. Zoologix performs this panel using highly specific
and sensitive PCR test protocols to enable rapid, accurate diagnosis
of infectious breeding problems in dogs.
