Product Code
Kit Principle



Tritrichomonas foetus Real-time PCR Test Kit can be used to detect Tritrichomonas foetus nucleic acid in canine and feline anal swab sample, which is rapid, accurate and easy-to-operate. Sensitivity 100%, Specificity 100%.

Tritrichomonas foetus is a species of single-celled flagellated parasites that is known to be a pathogen of the bovine reproductive tract as well as the intestinal tract of cats. In cattle, the organism is transmitted to the female vagina and uterus from the foreskin of the bull where the parasite is known to reside. It causes infertility, and, at times, has caused spontaneous abortions in the first trimester.

This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of Tritrichomonas foetus, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of Tritrichomonas foetus.

What are Tritrichomonas foetus?

Tritrichomonas foetus typically accumulates as protozoa in the small intestine of cats. The organism that causes the disease will reproduce by shedding, creating an ever growing population of parasites that will continue to endanger your cat’s health without appropriate treatment.

Tritrichomonas foetus in cats is a highly contagious disease that tends to affect cats that live in catteries, shelters or other areas with multiple animals. Given Tritrichomonas foetus’ ease of travel between affected felines, it can spread rapidly in contained environments. If one cat in a household is diagnosed with Tritrichomonas Foetus in, chances are all of the household cats, or cats that share the same litter box, are affected. This is true regardless of whether the other cats are showing symptoms yet.
