The Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae ELISA Oxoid/Dako kit, which many considered the reference in Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae serology, became unavailable in 2020 before being permanently withdrawn from the market in 2021. We have recently compared 3 serological assays that could possibly replace the Oxoid/Dako test i.e.: IDEXX ELISA test, IDEXX M. hyo Ab www.idexx.com/en/livestock/livestock-tests/swine-tests/idexx-m-hyo-ab-test Hipra ELISA test, CIVTEST® […]


Following the PRRS Forum organized by the CRIPA and the PRRS workshop held by the AVIA, we received questions regarding two diagnostic techniques and found it useful to give a brief update. CLAMP sequencing When a sample contains a mixture of PRRSV strains, sequencing by the Sanger method is usually able to sequence only one […]


At Biovet, for several years, we have been offering identification of PCV2 genotypes 2a, 2b and 2d by means of a multiplex RT-PCR test. Most of the samples submitted to us are sera from farms without clinical signs attributable to PCV2. Recently, we compiled genotyping results for the last 24 months: See the document For […]


Porcine parainfluenza virus type 1 (PPIV-1), recently renamed Respirovirus 1, is an enveloped RNA virus belonging to the genus Respirovirus in the family Paramyxoviridae. Our specialists provide you with the very first results of a study they recently undertook on the prevalence of several respiratory pathogens, including Influenza A, B, C and D viruses, PRRS […]


As you undoubtedly know, Biovet offers MFIA-based (Multiplexed Fluorescing Immuno Assay) tests allowing detection of the presence of antibodies against PRRSV types 1 and 2 and/or Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in porcine serum. In the first five months of 2021, we have examined more than 2,000 samples using the MFIA PRRSV & M. hyopneumoniae test. The test […]


Influenza viruses are divided into four types: A, B, C and D. Influenza A viruses are the most common and can infect humans, swine, cattle, birds and many other animal species (Henritzi and al, 2019; Zhang and al, 2019). Influenza B viruses mainly infect humans, but they can also occasionally infect swine (Takatsy and al […]


For several years, Biovet has collaborated with the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reference laboratory for influenza A of the National Center for Foreign Animal Diseases (NCFAM) of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in Winnipeg. We regularly provide them with positive samples for the swine influenza type A virus (VIA) to feed their […]


OUR LATEST TESTS As an innovative partner of veterinarians, Biovet is constantly implementing new tests, useful documents and more. Here are some of our novelties in recent months: Suis-cides” and swine erysipelas (PCR) New 2021 User’s Guide – Swine/Poultry Post-weaning STM and ETEC profile Salmonella Ab ELISA – New in-house test Digestive Colibacillosis in piglets […]


A real-time PCR (RT-PCR) profile for the detection of Actinobacillus suis, Glaesserella (anc. Haemophilus) parasuis, Streptococcus suis, and Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae is now available from Biovet. As their names indicate, “suis-cides” diseases are life-threatening swine (“suis”) diseases (“cides”) caused by Actinobacillus suis, Glaesserella (anc. Haemophilus) parasuis, or Streptococcus suis. Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae can be related to this […]


Since autumn 2020, all samples submitted to us for rtPCR SRRP testing are examined parallel to the Tetracore kit (EZ-PRRSV MPX) and the Biovet “in house” test. We recently compiled the results of tests conducted at the end of 2020 on 1514 various samples (serums, oral fluids, processing fluids, lungs). The results obtained at the […]
