Fall Test Offerings

Bovine Respiratory PCR panel

The bacterial and viral respiratory PCR panels offered by KSVDL can be very valuable tools for helping solve bovine respiratory disease outbreaks.

The bacterial panel detects M. haemolytica, P. multocida, H. somni, M. bovis, and B. trehalosi. The viral panel detects, BVDV, BRSV, BCoV, IBR, and M. bovis

The test can be completed on either tissue (lymph node or lung) or nasal/pharyngeal swabs.

Watch KSVDL’s short video on how to take a deep pharyngeal swab from live cattle:

For convenience, a single sample can be utilized for both the viral and bacterial PCR panels. The swab must be either a sterile swab moistened with saline submitted in a red-top tube or a swab submitted in viral transport media

A “gel” bacterial swab is not acceptable.
