Characteristics

  • Does not detect antigens of vaccination origin.
  • No crossed reactions with distemper virus, infectious hepatitis, parainfluenza and intestinal parasites.
  • High sensitivity.

Information for the veterinarian

1. Take the samples using the swab provided, as described in the previous section. Collect the samples using 2 swabs (one for Parvovirus-Coronavirus determination and another for Giardia determination).
2. Insert 1 swab into the tube containing the diluent buffer for Parvovirus and Coronavirus determination (diluent tube with blue cap identified as "dil. Parvo-Corona") and mix well for 10 seconds. If the diluted sample contains particles, wait for 1 minute until they sediment, use the
supernatant.
3. Insert the second swab into the tube containing the diluent buffer for Giardia determination (diluent tube with yellow cap identified as "dil. Giardia") and mix well for 10 seconds. If the diluted sample contains particles, wait for 1 minute until they sediment, use the supernatant.
4. Remove the test device from the protective pouch and place it on a flat and dry surface.
5. Using one of the provided pipettes, transfer 4 drops of the recently prepared sample to the round sample well, corresponding to Parvovirus strip, identified as Parvo. The sample must be added slowly, drop by drop and in an exact way.
6. Repeat the same procedure for the CCV test, identified as Corona.
7. Using a new pipette, transfer 4 drops of the recently prepared sample to the round sample well, corresponding to Giardia strip, identified as Giardia. The sample must be added slowly, drop by drop and in an exact way.
8. When the test begins running, you will observe migration of the sample through the result window. If migration has not begun 1 minute after sample addition, add one more drop of the diluted sample.
9. Read the results within 5-10 minutes. Coloured lines appeared after 20 minutes have not diagnostic value and should be ignored.

Giardiasis is undoubtedly the most common internal parasitosis in dogs. It is usually subclinical although in some cases it can cause intermittent mucoid diarrhoea or persistent diarrhoea with steatorrhoea, anorexia, vomiting, loss of appetite and listlessness.

It can sometimes present with a clinical manifestation similar to that of parvovirus or coronavirus infections and is difficult to distinguish from diarrhoea caused by these viruses.

Negative result

There is only a single purple line on the C area (control line) of Parvovirus, Coronavirus and Giardia.

Positive result

Two lines appear on the result window (T and C lines).

Invalid result

The test is invalid if not coloured line appears at the Control area (C) even if a coloured line appears in the Test area (T). The reason may be due to incorrect handling or using a damaged test.
