Salmonella Typhimurium (STM) is one of the main Salmonella serotypes found in humans, various animal species and animal products. There are several variants of STM: “typical” STMs that have the somatic (O) 1,4, [5] 12 and flagellar (H) i and 1,2 antigens (identified as i: 1,2) so-called “monophasic” variants with flagellar antigens (H) that are […]

As you know, the M. hyopneumoniae ELISA kit from Oxoïd/Dako will no longer be available for several months. Among the options we propose to replace this test, there is the M. hyopneumoniae MFIA, as well as the PRRSV type 1 – PRRSV type 2 – M. hyopneumoniae MFIA for those who want to test for […]


Dear customers, The Oxoïd company recently notified us that their ELISA M. hyopneumoniae kit (formerly Dako) will no longer be available for several months. Our last reagents in stock are depleted, so we can offer you three options: MFIA* M. hyopneumoniae test from Biovet MFIA* PRRSV type 1 and 2 – M. hyopneumoniae test from […]


In the past few months, we have developed several real-time PCR (qPCR) tests in multiplex format. Multiplex tests can detect multiple agents in the same reaction. With current equipment, we are limited to a maximum of 4 agents per multiplex test. One of the main advantages of multiplex testing is to reduce the cost of […]


Biovet is proud to announce that its serology laboratory has been certified by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) Antibody Test Kit, ELISA method (SOP-SE-036). This is the ELISA method required by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to establish health certificates to export swine to certain […]


Several cases of polioencephalomyelitis caused by Porcine sapelovirus (PSV) have been recently reported in Québec herds. Porcine sapelovirus (PSV) is an RNA virus in the family Picornaviridae. PSV is closely related to members of the Enterovirus genus and was previously known as porcine enterovirus 8 (PEV-8). Domestic and wild swine are the only known hosts […]


We want to inform you that we will soon offer a new real-time PCR (qPCR) test for detection of the PRRS virus. Like our previous qPCR, this test was developed in-house. The new test will still detect and differentiate type 1 (European) and 2 (North American) PRRS viruses in the same reaction. Although only type […]


The presence of certain bacteria in ready-to-use boar semen can detrimentally affect semen quality over time. Consequently, the use of contaminated semen may result in poor fertility (returns to oestrus) and endometritis (vaginal discharges) in recipient females. Most bacteria found in contaminated ready-to-use boar semen belong to the Enterobacteriaceae family. Among them, Serratia marcescens is […]


Biovet is proud to announce that its Agri-Food Microbiology Laboratory has been certified by the Canadian Standards Council (SCC) as “Conforms with requirements of CAN-P-1587, CAN-P-4E (ISO/IEC 17025)”. This concerns a National Standard Method for Salmonella Enteritidis Culture and Isolation from Poultry Environmental Samples, approved by the CFIA. Biovet operates a laboratory accredited by CFIA […]
