Myxomatosis PCR Test
A Myxoma virus PCR test is now available at LABOKLIN.
Myxomatosis is an acute generalized and mostly fatal disease in rabbits, characterized by subcutaneous oedema and cutaneous and/or subcutaneous nodular. Due to the mainly arthropod-borne transmission occurrence is mostly seen in wet, cool summers.
Sample material: Conjunctival swab without media, tissue.
The mutation responsible for causing HNPK
The mutation responsible for causing Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis (HNPK) has been, for the first time, described by Prof. Dr. Tosso Leeb from the University of Bern and his team. Laboklin could acquire the worldwide exclusive license for the HNPK test which is about to be patented.
Differentiation of feline haemotropic mycoplasmas – PCR now available
In cats, three different haemotropic mycoplasmas (previously Haemobartonella) are described so far varying strongly in their pathogenic potential. Beside the Ohio isolate Mycoplasma haemofelis and the most common California isolate Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum, a third species was recently identified, designated as Candidatus Mycoplasma turicensis. While Mycoplasma haemofelis alone could lead to a severe infectious anaemia in immuncompetent animals, an infection with Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum is usually subclinical. Coinfections are possible and result in more obvious clinical signs than monoinfections.
Beside our conventional Haemobartonella PCR detecting all three strains, we now offer - in a further step - the possibility to differentiate between the various pathogenic feline haemobartonella strains.
Material: 0.5 ml EDTA blood
