Ruminant fecal PCR screening panel
code: P0047 - Ultrasensitive
detection and differentiation of the following pathogens using
real time PCR and reverse transcription coupled real time PCR protocols:
Zoo veterinarians and field biologists often monitor for
fecal pathogens that can affect the health of bovines, equines,
cervids and other ruminant hoofstock in facilities
or in wild populations. The Zoologix ruminant fecal PCR
includes several of the most common pathogens of interest in
these situations. Zoologix performs this panel using highly
specific, sensitive and fast real time PCR test protocols.
Screen for GI diseases among ruminants in zoos and other
Monitor the health status of wild ruminant populations
Early prevention of the spread of pathogens between
facilities or populations
Help confirm the presence of disease-causing agents
Selection of appropriate treatment regimens
Shorten time required to confirm a clinical diagnosis
Minimize human exposure to these pathogens
Safety monitoring of biological products
0.5 ml feces (diarrhea preferred), or 4 well-coated rectal swabs.
Contact Zoologix if advice is needed to determine an appropriate specimen type for a specific diagnostic application. For specimen types not listed here, please contact Zoologix to confirm specimen acceptability and shipping instructions.
specimen types, if there will be a delay in shipping, or during
very warm weather, refrigerate specimens until shipped and ship
with a cold pack unless more stringent shipping requirements are
specified. Frozen specimens should be shipped so as to remain
frozen in transit. See shipping
instructions for more information.
