Canine Parvovirus-Coronavirus Antigen Test Kit
Immunochromatographic test for the qualitative detection of canine parvovirus and coronavirus antigen in canine feces
Canine Parvovirus and Coronavirus cause sporadic outbreak of vomiting and diarrhea in dogs and are widely spread throughout the world. The rate of simultaneous infection of CPV and CCV is up to 25% of CPV infections (Evermann 1989) and simultaneous infection is much more severe and fatal than a single infection. The clinical sign of CCV is usually mild enteritis and some deaths have been reported in young dogs. The clinical signs of CPV and CCV are very similar (diarrhea and vomiting) making it difficult to differentiate which virus is the causative agent by clinical signs alone.
Features of Canine Parvovirus – Coronavirus Antigen Rapid Test Kit:
- Highly purified antibodies produced by biotechnology for the detection and capture of canine parvovirus and coronavirus antigens
- Highly sensitive and specific
- Simple and easy to use
- Storage at room temperature
- Works with feces
- 2-year shelf life
- Small sample volume
Canine Parvovirus-Coronavirus Antigen test kit includes 10 tests
The Rapide – Parvovirus-Coronavirus Antigen Test Kit is a chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Canine Parvovirus (CPV) antigen and Coronavirus (CCV) antigen in canine feces.
In large scale studies using several hundreds clinical samples, Rapide Parvovirus-Coronavirus Antigen Test Kit was compared to PCR, a reference standard technique used by diagnostic labs, for detection of CPV and CCV antigens; the sensitivity and specificity were 100% for CPV antigen detection compared to PCR; the sensitivity was 93.1% and the specificity was 97.5% for CCV antigen detection compared to PCR. In a field trial study taking place at multiple veterinary clinics in the United-States, the sensitivity and specificity were 100% compared to PCR for CPV antigen detection.
Frequently Asked Questions
Vaccination cannot interfere and will not give a false positive result using our test. Professor Ronald Schultz at the University of Wisconsin has performed a study in which he demonstrated that parvovirus shedding in the feces after vaccination is below the level of detection of hemagglutination assay, the gold standard laboratory method for detection of parvovirus.
