Coryza is a common disease in cats, especially those living in groups. Most often, the cause is a viral infection caused by a herpes virus or calicivirus or by a bacterium such as Chlamydia felis. The main clinical signs are hyperthermia, sneezing, discharge from the nose and eyes and sometimes ulcers in the mouth.
Astéria Calicivirus tests are new generation molecular tests that allow the detection of a fragment of the genome of herpes virus, calicivirus and Chlamydia felis in a reliable and rapid way in order to obtain indications on the presence or not of the pathogen(s) implicated in the appearance of the clinical signs observed.
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.
