IDEXX Rota-Corona-k99 Ag Test

Calf diarrhoea

The IDEXX Rota-Corona-k99 Ag Test is an ELISA that differentiates between rotavirus, coronavirus and E. coli (by detecting its attachment factor k99) infections by antigen detection. This method is easy to use, fast, reliable and very adequate for the analysis of a large number of samples. The results can be evaluated either by a simple “naked eye” reading or by photospectrometer reading. The key feature of this test is to enable the user to work according to his or her needs: either on one, two or three valences, separately or together (coating of the three antibodies per well and three specific conjugates with different colours).

About calf diarrhoea

Neonatal diarrhoea, or calf scours, is a major cause of mortality in calves less than one month of age. It's caused by various infectious organisms—bacteria, virus, and protozoa—but death is commonly the result of one thing: dehydration.

Colostrum is a first line of defense against bovine diarrhoea, offering nursing calves protection against infectious agents such as Rota virus, Corona virus, Cryptosporidium parvum, E. coli (K99 enterotoxigenic form) and Salmonella.

Clinical symptoms are similar, regardless of the organism, so when sickness occurs effective management depends upon a combination of faecal testing to identify the causative organism and treatment that includes antibiotics to eliminate infection and fluids to combat dehydration and restore electrolytes.

IDEXX offers a suite of tools for detecting the most common causes of bovine diarrhea.
