The isolated fever syndrome in equines refers to a complex set of often numerous and non-specific clinical signs such as hyperthermia, depression, anorexia, anemia or jaundice. Theileriosis, Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Borreliosis and Leptospirosis can be caused by parasites called Theileria equi or Babesia caballi or pathogenic bacteria Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Leptospira and Borrelia spp..
The Epona Babesia tests are new generation molecular tests allowing the detection of a fragment of the genome of pathogenic Babesia caballi in a reliable and rapid manner in order to obtain indications as to the presence or absence of the pathogen(s) incriminated in the appearance of the clinical signs observed.
Unlike traditional PCR reactions, Epona tests are performed in just a few steps on a portable and easy-to-use reader system. The result can therefore be obtained in less than 40 minutes directly in your clinic.
