As you know, ticks can transmit a variety of microorganisms that can cause sometimes severe infections to humans and animals as a result of bites inflicted by them. In Québec, these are mainly: bacteria of the genus Borrelia spp., responsible for Lyme disease; Anaplasma phagocytophilum, responsible for granulocyte anaplasmosis protozoa of the genus Babesia spp, […]

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 […]


Biovet offers a new test for Canine Vaccine titer. This test has been recommended by the WSAVA VACCINATION GUIDELINES GROUP* for: Reducing the number of automatic triennial core revaccinations for adult dogs Determining whether a puppy has responded to vaccination Testing of newly adopted adult dogs of unknown vaccination history A single sample is used […]


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 […]


Biovet is proud to announce that it now offers a Next-Generation DNA sequencing Microbial Test. A partnership with MiDOG, LLC which has developed those tests will be performed in their laboratory located in California. This Microbial Test provides complete and accurate identification of bacterial and fungi pathogens to guide the design of targeted and accurate […]


First commercial ELISA kit for detecting APP13 antibodies * Swinecheck APP13 major advantage is its excellent sensitivity. Porcine pleuropneumonia (PPP), caused by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP), leads to high economic losses in affected swine herds worldwide. A remarkable feature of APP is that its virulence greatly varies depending on the isolates. This results in clinical situations […]


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 […]
