The equine acute repiratory syndrome refers to a complex set of symptoms that are often numerous and not very specific, such as hyperthermia, serous nasal discharge, or inflammation of the upper respiratory tract.
These symptoms may derive from infectious and contagious diseases caused either by viruses such as EHV-1, EHV-4 and equine influenza virus, or by bacteria such as Streptococcus equi subspecies equi.
The Epona tests for the isolated fever are next generation of molecular POC tests, allowing the detection of a genomic fragment of Theileria equi, Babesia caballi, Anaplasma phagocytophilum and/or Borrelia spp. in a reliable and rapid manner in order to obtain indications as to the pathogen(s) that are involved in the appearance of the observed symptoms.
Unlike traditional PCR tests, Epona tests require few preparation steps, on a portable and easy-to-use reading instrument. The result can be obtained in less than 40 minutes.
