The Fassisi BoDia can be used as diagnostic or prognostic tool, as well as a control instrument in herds:
The Fassisi BoDia is a rapid test for in vitro diagnosis of antigens which are specific for the major causative agents of calf diarrhea (neonatal calf diarrhea). Calf diarrhea is a common disorder that occurs during the first weeks of life. This can lead to growth retardation of the calves and associated economic losses. The diarrhea is a cardinal symptom, the causes can be various. It is important to distinguish between non-infectious factors caused, for example by feeding mistakes or lack of stable hygiene and infectious factors. One of the main pathogens causing calf diarrhea include Rotavirus, Coronavirus, Cryptosporidium parvum and E. coli K99. The pathogens occur both as single infections, as well as mixed infections, with severe courses of disease. Solely on the basis of clinical symptoms it is hardly possible to differentiate the involved diarrheal pathogens.
With the Fassisi Bodia both single infections, as well as mixed infections of the detected parameters can reliably be diagnosed.
Further information about the detected pathogens and sources can be found here.
