FASTest FIV Single Test

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus

Test applicable to: Cat

Sample: Whole Blood, Serum and Plasma

FASTest FIV diagnostic test kit is based on a rapid immunochromatographic technique. FIV-Antibodies in the sample will form specific antigen-antibody complexes in the sample area. Lateral flow (migration) towards the FIV areas (marked ‘T’ on the slide) allows these complexes to bind with gold particles labelled with synthetic FIV-Proteins to form a pink-purple Test line. A correct test procedure will be indicated by a second pink-purple line in the Control area (marked ‘C’ on the slide)

Why is it important to test for FIV? 

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is found world-wide in cats. Depending on their age, health, environment, and lifestyle the prevalence of infection can vary greatly. FIV-Antibody detection is accepted as the method of first choice for the diagnosis of FIV infection. Approximately 95% of FIV infected cats show high FIV-Antibody concentration in their blood approx. 4 weeks post infection. Based on synthetic FIV-Proteins FASTest FIV is an important diagnostic tool for the detection of infected cats.
