Dependability and Easy Interpretation Yield Accurate Results
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
1Data on file. Pfizer Animal Health, December 1998. 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.
