We have received several requests for early bovine pregnancy tests of blood or milk. These tests can be performed from 60 days after calving and 28 days after AI. The accepted samples are (in order of preference): serum clotted blood (brown cap tube or other dry tube without preservatives) plasma (EDTA)* whole blood (EDTA)* milk […]


In recent weeks, several cases of swine dysentery associated with B. hyodysenteriae or “B. hampsonii” have been reported in Quebec. Many species of Brachsyspira have been identified in pigs: B. hyodysenteriae, B. innocens, B. pilosicoli, B. murdochii, B. intermedia, B. suanatina and “B. hampsonii’’ To date, however, only 4 species of Brachyspira have been formally […]


For your information, we have compiled the results of the bovine respiratory profiles made in 2019. The following 10 agents were searched for simultaneously using real-time PCR tests (quantitative PCRs): BoHV1 (IBR), BRSV, PI3, BoCV (Coronavirus), BVDV, Influenza D Mannheimia haemolytica (Mh), Pasteurella multocida (Pm), Histophilus somni (Hs), Mycoplasma bovis (Mb) It should be noted […]


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 […]


Biovet is proud to offer you access to your results via the Internet, not only for veterinary testing, but now for water and agri-food analyses that are also available. La toute nouvelle version HTML de Bionet est compatible avec les appareils mobiles (téléphones et tablettes), en plus des ordinateurs. The all-new HTML version of Bionet […]


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 […]
