New CEM PCR
We have now established a new PCR test for our CEM Panel. The test can detect the 3 pathogens Taylorella equigenitalis, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. PCR is much faster (1 day) than the culture-based test, which takes 7 days. Our new test is now half the cost of the previous PCR test we were using. Samples can be processed same day as long as the sample reaches us by 12.30 pm. Our test is approved by BEVA and can be used to issue certificates that the animals are free of these 3 pathogens.
