Real-time qPCR Provides Rapid and Reliable Veterinary Diagnostics Testing
In the veterinary diagnostics industry, modern laboratories are opting for real-time qPCR-based (qPCR) tests instead of antibody testing because of the increased speed and accuracy of qPCR tests. The heightened specificity of qPCR tests enables scientists to detect and differentiate among closely related strains.
Real-time PCR has overcome many obstacles that previously hindered its adoption in veterinary diagnostics laboratories. A combination of the latest state-of-the-art technology such as “fast” real-time PCR and sample prep automation dramatically reduces pathogen detection time, sample contamination, and user error. The use of qPCR testing allows veterinary diagnostic labs to identify affected animals quickly and take steps to treat or contain the illness.
LGC Biosearch Technologies manufactures a variety of qPCR probe formats to suit your specific needs. Our Dual-Labeled BHQ® probes, Molecular Beacons, and Black Hole Scorpions® primers use a BHQ dye as a quencher, ensuring a clear signal and a reliable test.
