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 […]

Neonatal diarrhea in cattle can be caused by many infectious agents (viruses, bacteria or parasites). Identification of the agents involved is important in order to implement the appropriate control measures. We have developed a set of real-time PCR (qPCR) tests that target the following eight of the most important agents: E. coli K99 (F5), Salmonella […]

Since we started using our new Maldi Tof bacterial identification device, we have received many questions regarding the interpretation of testing reports mentioning various species of Staphylococci, such as S. chromogenes, S. simulans, S. xylosus, S. haemolyticus, S. epidermidis, S. cohni or S. sciuri. Before using the Maldi Tof device, we reported these species under […]

Biovet has just acquired a “Maldi Biotyper Smart System”, a bacterial identification machine using MALDI TOF MS technology. This device enables extremely fast and accurate identification of bacteria as soon as isolates are obtained. This is particularly useful for bacterial species difficult or impossible to identify with traditional methods, as is the case for coagulase-negative […]

Biovet now offers a new quantitative PCR profile for the diagnosis of abortion in cattle. In cattle, abortions normally occur at a relatively low rate of approximately 3% to 5%. Bovine abortions may result from numerous and varied causes—infectious and non-infectious. Infectious causes, however, are the most numerous and the most frequent. Among them, the […]

Recurrent cases of mastitis? What if the cause was in the bedding? Several bacteria present in bedding can cause so-called environmental mastitis. In particular, these are Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Streptococcus uberis When such cases of mastitis occur recurrently, testing the bedding may be useful for assessing its microbiological characteristics. Biovet offers you a […]

Biovet has recently developed a multiplex real-time PCR (qPCR) test to detect and differentiate the 4 of the most frequent species of coagulase negative Staphylococci (CNS) i.e. S. chromogenes, S. epidermidis, S. simulans and S. xylosus. The qPCR CNS test is a complementary tool to the culture and can help you to improve the control […]

Biovet wants to promote the diagnosis of respiratory infections in cattle. Based on the feedback from the field, it appears that attempts to diagnose these conditions often produce disappointing results. We believe that this can be due to several factors, including: • Samples taken too late, too few animals examined, samples from anterior rather than […]

Biovet souhaite promouvoir le diagnostic des infections respiratoires chez les bovins. D’après les retours du terrain, il apparaît que les tentatives de diagnostic de ces affections se soldent souvent par des résultats décevants. Nous pensons que cela peut être imputé à plusieurs facteurs, notamment: Échantillons prélevés trop tardivement, sur trop peu d’animaux, échantillons des voies […]
