  • Dependability and Easy Interpretation Yield Accurate Results

    Easy Interpretation

    • Color change versus negative control confirm results

    – Any color change with greater intensity than the negative control (clear) indicates the animal has previously been exposed to or currently has an active infection with FCoV
    – No color development in the test sample well strongly suggests a lack of clinical disease due to FCoV

    Excellent Sensitivity and Specificity1

    • Sensitivity: 99%
    • Specificity: 98%

    The presence of antibodies to FCoV indicates the possibility of Feline Enteric Coronavirus (FECV), which is generally thought to be the precursor of Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) infection. A positive titer does not necessarily mean that the cat has FECV and/or FIP; however, a positive FCoV serology should be considered in conjunction with other clinical findings and symptomatology to support a diagnosis of FECV and/or FIP. A negative antibody titer strongly suggests lack of clinical disease due to FECV and/or FIP.
