A semiquantitative realtime PCR for the direct detection of canine and feline Demodex mites is now available at LABOKLIN. This PCR test is validated for all currently known species in dogs (D.canis, D.injai, D.cornei) and cats (D.cati, D.gatoi, D.felis).

Sample material
: deep skin scrapings


Differentiation of dermatophytes via PCR

The LABOKLIN dermatophyte PCR has been further developed and improved now allowing differentiation of the dermatophyte species after a positive PCR result.
The new PCR is able to detect and differentiate the following dermatopyhtes: Microsporum (M.) canis, M. gypseum, M. persicolor, Trichophyton (T.) mentagrophytes, and T. equinum.
Sample material: hairs (hair roots!), skin scrapings, skin scales.
Test duration: 2-4 working days.
