Qualitative Detection Of Bovine Coronavirus Antigens
Test Applicable to: CalfSample: Faeces
The FASTest BCV Strip is based on a rapid immunochromatographic test principle. The test membrane contains two unique monoclonal antibodies. One of these monoclonal antibodies is bound to colloidal gold particles, the second is immobilised in the test zone of the strip. If the stool sample extract contains bovine coronavirus antigens, these will form an antigen-antibody complex with the gold particles. As this complex migrates along the Test zone of the membrane to the immobilised capture antibody, a pink-purple line is formed indicating a positive test result.
Fast Aetiological Diagnostics
Coronavirus infections show fluid and mucous diarrhoea, mostly over a short period of time. Stress situations and secondary viral or bacterial infections concurrent to bovine coronavirus infections can prove fatal to the animal.
Bovine Coronavirus is often associated with Rotavirus, Cryptosporidium and enterotoxigenic E.coli. Also see our FASTest D4T Bovine Strip which is a unique device allowing a faeces sample to be tested using 4 rapid immunochromatographic test strips for the detection of Bovine Coronavirus, Rotavirus, Cryptosporidium and E.coli-99 – all at the same time.
