Equine Diarrhea RealPCR Panel
Faster, more definitive diagnoses of equine gastrointestinal diseases
Identifying the pathogens causing equine gastrointestinal disease is critical for determining treatments, implementing biosecurity protocols and managing the spread of disease. Treatment protocols can be costly and inconvenient, so a quick, accurate diagnosis is essential.
With the IDEXX Equine Diarrhea RealPCR Panel, veterinarians can now submit one sample to test for either 6 or 10 gastrointestinal pathogens.
The Equine Diarrhea RealPCR Panel is available in two configurations: Comprehensive and Standard. If a positive Salmonella PCR result is obtained with either panel, a culture and susceptibility test will be performed.
|Pathogen||Comprehensive Panel||Standard Panel||Culture*|
|Clostridium perfringens Enterotoxin A||x||x|
|Clostridium difficile Toxin A||x||x|
|Clostridium difficile Toxin B||x||x|
Fecal sample (5–10 grams) in container (preferably sterile) with ice packs
