Recently, Denmark tightened its lockdown amid fears of a viral mutation on the spike protein after re-transmission of COVID-19 from minks to humans.

Recently, Denmark tightened its lockdown amid fears of a viral mutation on the spike protein after re-transmission of COVID-19 from minks to humans.

Indeed, the COVID-19 pandemic in humans has led to increased interest in determining the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 in animal species.

The OIE, in its Technical Fact Sheet dated July 2020, outlines the importance of monitoring SARS-CoV-2 infection in animals.

Infected surfaces are also sources of human contamination

 

MULTI-SPECIES ELISA ANTIBODY TEST

The ID Screen® SARS-CoV-2 Double Antigen Multi-Species is a double antigen ELISA.

Based on the nucleocapsid, it may be used to detect anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in multiple species.

VETERINARY AND ENVIRONMENTAL RT-qPCR TEST

The ID Gene™ SARS-COV-2 Duplex RT-PCR kit amplifies a target sequence in the SARS-CoV-2 genome.

A qualitative duplex test, it simultaneously amplifies target RNA and:

  • an endogenous non-target positive control (for the analysis of cellular matrices)
  • or an exogenous non-target positive control (for the analysis of cell-free matrices)
