BioPRYN Pregnancy Testing



This test offers a safe, accurate, and easy alternative for confirming pregnancy in sheep and goats. BioPRYN measures the presence of Pregnancy-Specific Protein B (PSPB), a protein only produced by the placenta of a growing fetus, in the blood circulation of the doe. The test is 99% accurate and a ewe/doe can be tested for pregnancy at 30 days or later post breeding or buck removal. At least 3 ml of whole blood should be collected in a “red top” vacuum tube. Samples do not need (but can be) refrigerated or shipped with an ice pack. Samples are good for 30 days after the collection date.

CAE/OPP Testing


Maedi-visna virus (MVV) infection of sheep is characterized by slowly progressive arthritis, pneumonia, mastitis and encephalomyelitis. MVV infection is found all over the world. This classification also includes caprine arthritis encephalitis virus (CAEV), which manifests itself in adult goats mainly in the form of severe arthritis of the carpal joint ("big knee"). Animals with CAEV become emaciated despite an intact appetite, and show poor milk yield. An effective vaccination does not exist. For this reason, eradication programs are based on colostrum deprivation, separation and serological detection of infected animals. Sheep and goats blood can be tested for this disease. At least 3 ml of whole blood should be collected in a “red top” vacuum tube. Samples should be refrigerated after collection and be shipped with an ice pack. Samples should be tested no later than 2 weeks from the collection date.  

Johnes’ Testing


Johne's disease (pronounced "yo-knees") is a contagious, chronic and usually fatal infection that affects primarily the small intestine of ruminants. All ruminants are susceptible to Johne's disease. Johne's disease is caused by Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis. Signs are rarely evident until two or more years after the initial infection, which usually occurs shortly after birth. At least 3 ml of whole blood should be collected in a “red top” vacuum tube. Samples should be refrigerated after collection and be shipped with an ice pack. Samples should be tested no later than 2 weeks from the collection date.

 

Cattle and Bison


BioPRYN Pregnancy Testing


This test offers a safe, accurate, and easy alternative for confirming pregnancy in beef cattle. BioPRYN measures the presence of Pregnancy-Specific Protein B (PSPB), a protein only produced by the placenta of a growing fetus, in the blood circulation of the animal. In addition to being safe, accurate and easy to use, BioPRYN is supported by industry experts educated in integrating the test to improve reproduction programs. BioPRYN is effective 28 days or later, after breeding, but lactating cows must also be 73 days after calving.



Johnes’ Testing


Johne's disease (pronounced "yo-knees") is a contagious, chronic and usually fatal infection that affects primarily the small intestine of ruminants. All ruminants are susceptible to Johne's disease. Johne's disease is caused by Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis. Signs are rarely evident until two or more years after the initial infection, which usually occurs shortly after birth. At least 3 ml of whole blood should be collected in a “red top” vacuum tube. Samples should be refrigerated after collection and be shipped with an ice pack. Samples should be tested no later than 2 weeks from the collection date. 

BVD Testing


Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) suppresses a cow's immune system, making the animal susceptible to a host of other infections. That's why BVDV is one of the world's most costly bovine diseases, with losses of $15–$88 per head from reduced herd productivity, health and reproductive efficiency.  Stopping BVDV requires detecting and removing the infection source: persistently infected (PI) cattle that continually expose other animals to disease. Because PI cattle often look healthy, a sensitive, specific diagnostic test is essential. At least 3 ml of whole blood should be collected in a “red top” vacuum tube. Samples should be refrigerated after collection and be shipped with an ice pack. Samples should be tested no later than 2 weeks from the collection date. 

 



Wild Game



This test offers a safe, accurate, and easy alternative for confirming pregnancy in several wildlife species. BioPRYNwild measures the presence of Pregnancy-Specific Protein B (PSPB), a protein only produced by the placenta of the growing fetus of ruminant mammals. The assay is accurate with most wildlife ruminant species, including elk, deer, moose, reindeer, caribou and other cervids. The test is 99% accurate and females can be tested for pregnancy at 40 days or later post breeding or male removal. At least 3 ml of whole blood should be collected in a “red top” vacuum tube. Samples do not need (but can be) refrigerated or shipped with an ice pack. Samples are good for 30 days after the collection date.
