Immunodiagnostics Parasitology

The Immunodiagnostics/Parasitology section offers basic parasitology services including a variety of qualitative and quantitative fecal examinations, and parasite identification. We perform indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) tests that titer antibody to end point, not just a screening dilution. We provide an array of molecular diagnostic assays for detection of blood-borne bacterial and protozoal diseases.

We specialize in assays for arthropod-borne diseases, canine and feline blood donors, and canine export testing.

Our panels for arthropod-borne disease assays and canine and feline blood donor screening make it easier for clients to get the answers they’re looking for with just one submission. Examples include:

  • Tick Borne Disease Antibody Screen (60013)
  • Equine Tick Core Panel (60989)
  • Tick PCR (60065)
  • Canine Donor Mini Panel (60996)
