Canine Leishmania

Test applicable to: Dog

Sample: Whole Blood, Serum or Plasma

FASTest LEISH is a rapid immunochromatographic test for the detection of Leishmania infantum IgG-Antibodies in the anti-coagulated whole blood, serum or plasma of dogs using a simple lateral flow principle for the detection of the antibodies which are present.

If there are any antibodies present in the sample they will reach the conjugate pad and react with mobile monoclonal antibodies labelled with gold particles.


Why is it important to test for Canine Leishmania?

Canine Leishmaniasis is a protozoal disease caused by the proliferation of Leishmania infantum in organisms. It is passed on by small insects, the phlebotom, which are both hosts and vectors. Although detected primarily near the Mediterranean Sea, it has also been detected in other regions of Europe.

It is transported by sand-flies (plebotominae) via stings to the animal and they infect and reproduce in macrophages and cells of the animal’s reticuloendothelial system, also affecting the liver, spleen, bone marrow, lymph nodes of the animal.
