A Rapid and Precise Diagnostic Test for the Detection of Coronavirus in Dogs


Canine Coronavirus infection (or CCV) is a highly contagious intestinal disease that can be found in dogs all around the world. Coronaviruses are single-strand RNA virus that causes either enteric or respiratory disease in mammals.

Using a proprietary Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology, the QubeMDx performs the detection of CANINE CORONAVIRUS in only 15 minutes.

The QubeMDx is a real Point-of-Care solution that empowers the veterinarian with the right information at the right time, so they can make the right decision and provide the best course of treatment for the animal.

Advantages:

  • Instant detection of CCoV
  • High accuracy and specificity
  • Shorter turnaround time
  • Faster Medical Decision

Canine Coronavirus
Though traditionally considered a mild disease, the mutation feature of the virus still poses a threat to dogs around the world. Mutation to more virulent strains had led to severe outbreaks in the USA, England, Sweden, and Australia. Mutation to spread systemically also had been detected in Italy and was classified as pantropic CCoV.

Vaccine against the virus is available but provides incomplete protection, especially for pantropic CCoV. Prompt diagnosis and treatment intervention should be carried out to block the disease outbreak and increase disease outcome.

The symptoms of a CCV infection vary. In adult dogs, the majority of infections will be unapparent, with no symptoms to show:

  • Single instance of vomiting
  • Explosive diarrhea
  • Anorexia
  • Fever(rare)
  • Mild respiratory problems
  • Depression
