Equine respiratory PCR panel
Equine respiratory PCR panel includes qualitative detection

frequently see generalized respiratory symptoms in their
patients that could be caused by a number of different viral or
bacterial agents. Recommended treatments and quarantine
protocols differ among these pathogens, and some can be quite
expensive and stressful for animals and owners.
respiratory test panel is a powerful diagnostic tool for use in
these cases. Zoologix performs this panel using highly specific,
sensitive and fast PCR test protocols.
