KIBBUTZ GALED, Israel, June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Biogal Galed Labs, a global leader of veterinary diagnostic solutions, has announced the commercialization of two new PCRunTM Veterinary Molecular Detection Kits.
Biogal has announced the launch of the Canine Babesia canis and Canine Parvovirus PCRunTM molecular detection test kits.
This is now in addition to the five previously commercialized PCRunTM molecular detection test kits for canine Leptospira, Ehrlichia canis, Anaplasma platys, Leishmania and Feline Mycoplasma haemofelis.
The paradigm of a PCR test being performed in a specialized veterinary lab with prolonged turnaround times has now been broken.
Veterinarians are sick of waiting up to one week to receive a PCR result.
With Biogal's PCRunTM, vets can now receive a PCR result within 75 minutes, says Amos Gershony, Biogal's CEO.
Conventional PCR testing procedure requires multiple steps, via expensive, time consuming and complicated devices called thermocyclers.
For a veterinary lab to even set up a PCR lab, they need to spend tens of thousands of dollars.
With PCRun, there is no need for a thermocycler. PCRunTM is flexible, meaning it can be used in a small animal veterinary lab and/or clinic. You simply purchase the kits only.
Now with PCRunTM, veterinary professionals purchase components of the PCRun kit for a fraction of the price and run the test at a fraction of the time.
