Tick-borne diseases are vector-borne diseases whose clinical signs observed can mainly be high fever, depression, anorexia and sometimes vomiting. These infectious diseases are caused either by parasites such as Babesia canis canis, Babesia canis vogeli, Babesia gibsoni; or by bacteria such as Borrelia spp., Ehrlichia canis, Anaplasma platys, Anaplasma phagocytophilum.
The Astéria Babésia tests are new generation molecular tests allowing the detection of a fragment of the pathogen’s genome in a reliable and rapid way in order to obtain indications on the presence or absence of the pathogen(s) incriminated in the appearance of the observed clinical signs.
Unlike conventional PCR reactions, Asteria tests are performed in just a few steps, on a portable and easy-to-use reading system. The result can therefore be obtained in less than 40 minutes, at the clinic or in the field.
