The SERASCA®-test - LICENSED

A novel tool to diagnose Ascaris suum infections in fatteners

A serodiagnostic test by which exposure of animals to Ascaris suum during the fattening period can be measured.

With a diagnostic specificity and sensitivity of 99,5 %, the test clearly performs better than the currently used diagnostic tools such as faecal egg counts and percentage condemned livers at slaughter.

Proof of concept

The test is commercially available.

Access

The test is marketed by Bio-X Diagnostics
