Additional Information: 

Panel is designed for ruminants < 8 days old and includes detection of Bovine Coronavirus, Bovine Rotavirus-Group A, Cryptosporidium spp, E. Coli-K99+ and Salmonella spp. 

*Fee is $57.75 each for the first 3 specimens. If 4 or more specimens are submitted from the same herd at the same time all tests are $51.75 each. Each pathogen within the panel may be tested for individually, for $35.75 each.

The E. coli-K99+ PCR assay is specific for detection of the K99+ antigen and will not detect other E. coli strains. 

The Bovine Rotavirus PCR assay is specific for Group A rotaviruses and will not detect other common rotaviruses (i.e., Group B, commonly detected in goats).

Parasitology/culture should be added if additional pathogens are suspected; see Ruminant Enteric Disease Diagnostic Panel.
