Fassisi BoDia can be used as a diagnostic, prognostic or monitoring tool in herds:
Fassisi BoDia is a rapid test for in-vitro diagnosis of antigens which are specific to the major causative agents of calf diarrhea (neonatal calf diarrhoea). Calf diarrhoea is a common disorder
that occurs during the first weeks of life. This can lead to growth retardation in calves and corresponding economic losses. Diarrhoea is a cardinal symptom that can have many different causes.
It is important to distinguish between non-infectious factors caused, for example, by feeding errors or lack of stable hygiene, and infectious factors. Among the main pathogens causing calf
diarrhoea are the Rotavirus, Coronavirus, Cryptosporidium parvum and E. coli K99. The pathogens occur both as single infections and mixed infections leading to severe courses of disease. Solely
on the basis of clinical symptoms, it is virtually impossible to identify the diarrheal pathogens involved.
With the help of Fassisi BoDia, both single infections and mixed infections can be reliably diagnosed.
