We are in the process of updating our diagnostics
We are in the process of updating our diagnostics.
At the moment this applies to the diagnostics of Brachyspira hyodysenteriae, which we now analyse
by real-time PCR.
But shortly we will be offering the Lawsonia intracellularis PCR only as a real-time PCR, in order to
provide you an assessment of your samples that is either relatively (Ct value) or absolutely
quantitative by qPCR.
In this context we will offer Brachyspira pilosicoli diagnostics only within the scope of Brachyspira
spec. PCR (detection of Brachyspira spec., B. pilosicoli, B. hampsonii clade I + II, B. innocens, B.
intermedia, B. murdochii and B. suanatina) or the Brachyspira differentiation PCR (detection of
Brachyspira species, B. pilosicoli, B. hampsonii clade I + II, B. innocens, B. intermedia, B. murdochii and
B. suanatina by multiplex assay and B. hyodysenteriae by real-time PCR).
Furthermore, we have updated our Rotavirus PCR, which now detects both Rotavirus group A and
Rotavirus group C.
We have also made the corresponding changes in our swine diagnostics submission form and
recommend that you use this updated form with all future examination requests.
Lastly, we regret to inform you that we have also had to adjust our prices in accordance with overall
cost trends. These new prices go into effect as of 1 January 2018.
