Focus on Fasciola, Ileitis and Ostertagi

Last updated: 13th May, 2020

Svanova are leaders in veterinary diagnostic solutions to help monitor, prevent, control and eradicate significant animal disease.

Here we highlight three key products in their range:

Fasciola hepatica

Fasciola hepatica, also known as the common liver fluke, is a parasite found in wet-land grazing areas.

Create a sustainable antihelmintic strategy via a semi-quantitative test.

Apply the test to help predict the economic impact of Fasciola hepatica infection to help target anthelmintic treatment. The SVANOVIR® F. hepatica-Ab assay detects antibodies to the pathogen both during and after infection, unlike conventional testing methods that deliver results based on pathogens present in the sample.

This differentiator enables earlier insight into infection and allows for a semi-quantitative measurement, correlating antibody levels (parasitic exposure) to the economic consequences on milk yield and/or carcass weight.

Product Information:

Species Bovine, Milk, individuals and pools
Samples Serum, plasma, Meat juice
Type Indirect ELISA based on E/S antigen
Article Number 104896
Samples* 184
Plates 2
Format Strips

*Samples: Maximum number of samples for analysis, wells for kit controls excluded

Ileitis (Lawsonia intracellularis)

Ileitis is a widespread, costly enteric disease in swine, caused by the gram-negative bacteria Lawsonia intracellularis (L. intracellularis). The disease causes a severe loss in productivity and is difficult to diagnose, as symptoms mirror those of other intestinal diseases.

Schedule timely control measures.

Measure antibodies against L. intracellularis infection in pig serum or plasma to assess farm exposure status, and help schedule preventative vaccinations before the anticipated onset of ileitis. The exclusive SVANOVIR® L. intracellularis Ileitis-Ab blocking ELISA assay is a field-proven tool, enabling sero-profiling and sero-monitoring of pig groups and/or herds for L. intracellularis exposure. By detecting antibodies to infection, the assay helps farmers prevent or reduce the incidence and severity of clinical disease and supports better strategies for ileitis control in commercial and replacement animals.

 

Product Information:

Species Porcine
Samples Serum, plasma
Type Blocking ELISA-based, based on whole cell L.intracullularis antigen
Article Number 122275
Samples* 184
Format 2 plates

Tests: Number of tests.
Samples: Number of samples, wells for kit controls excluded

OSTERTAGIA ostertagi

Pastured dairy cattle contribute to a healthy milk supply. Animal welfare and productivity, however, are placed at risk by gastrointestinal nematode infections. In adult cattle, the single most significant nematode species is Ostertagia ostertagi (O. ostertagi).

Help develop a sustainable Ostertagia ostertagi decision making process.

Assess the economic benefit of anthelmintic treatment for O. ostertagi infection with the first assay to detect antibodies to O. ostertagi exposure in grazing cattle. The field-tested semi-quantitative SVANOVIR® O. ostertagi-Ab assay correlates antibody levels to the economic impact on the milk yield, offering a threshold at which anthelmintic use is justifiable. This provides an objective, specific and cost-effective method for evaluating the severity of infection and ensures that anthelmintics are used when needed, minimizing the development of anthelmintic resistance for long-term effectiveness.

Product Information:

Species Bovine
Samples Bulk tank milk
Type Semi quantitative indirect ELISA
Article Number 104897
Samples* 184
Plates 2
Format Strips

*Samples: Maximum number of samples for analysis, wells for kit controls excluded
