Feline coronavirus Real-time PCR test, FCoV RT-PCR Test is to detect feline coronavirus in cat feces. which is rapid, accurate and easy-to-operate. Sensitivity 100%, Specificity 100%.

Feline coronavirus (FCoV) is a positive-stranded RNA virus that infects cats worldwide. It is a coronavirus of the species Alphacoronavirus 1 which includes canine coronavirus (CCoV) and porcine transmissible gastroenteritis coronavirus (TGEV). It has two different forms: feline enteric coronavirus (FECV) that infects the intestines and feline infectious peritonitis virus (FIPV) that causes the disease feline infectious peritonitis (FIP).

What is feline coronavirus, FCoV? 

FCoV is a common and contagious virus which is passed in the faeces of cats. It is more commonly found in multi-cat. And infection in some leads to the fatal disease feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). 

Recognition and Diagnosis of FCoV

A positive diagnosis of FIP can be difficult to make, particularly in the absence of characteristic clinical signs, including most classically, effusion in the chest or abdomen. Diagnosis is generally made based on a combination of signalment, clinical signs, blood work and specific tests.

PCR can be used to detect viral genetic material in tissue or body fluid; there are no effective PCR tests for detecting virus in the blood. Historically, PCR testing could not distinguish between FCoV and FIPV, and results lacked clinical significance similar to FCoV titer testing.
