PCR for feline, also known as Feline PCR, refers to the application of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology in veterinary medicine to detect and analyze specific genetic markers or sequences in cats. It is a highly sensitive and accurate diagnostic tool used for the identification of genetic diseases, infectious agents, and traits in felines. Feline PCR involves the amplification of targeted DNA regions, allowing for the detection and diagnosis of various feline conditions, aiding in treatment planning and genetic screening in cats.


Types of Feline PCR Test Kits

Feline Calicivirus (FCV) Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
FCV PCR is a molecular diagnostic test used in pets, primarily cats, to identify the presence of Feline Calicivirus (FCV). It detects viral genetic material in samples, helping to diagnose and monitor infections of this highly contagious virus that can cause respiratory and oral disease in cats.
Feline Herpesvirus (FHV) Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
FHV PCR is a molecular diagnostic test for pets, especially cats, that detects Feline Herpesvirus (FHV). This test identifies the presence of genetic material from the virus in samples, aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of infections caused by this highly contagious virus, which primarily affects the respiratory system in cats.
Feline Panleukopenia Virus (FPV) Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
FPV PCR is a molecular diagnostic test for pets, particularly cats, that detects Feline Panleukopenia Virus (FPV). This test identifies the viral genetic material in samples, aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of infections caused by this highly contagious virus, which primarily affects the gastrointestinal system and bone marrow in cats.
Feline Infectious Peritonitis Virus (FIPV) Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
FIPV PCR is a molecular diagnostic test for pets, specifically cats, that detects Feline Infectious Peritonitis Virus (FIPV). This test identifies the presence of viral genetic material in samples, helping in the diagnosis and monitoring of infections caused by this highly fatal and immune-mediated virus that affects multiple organ systems in cats.
Feline Calicivirus (FCV) / Feline Herpesvirus (FHV) Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
The FLASHTEST PCR reagent kit utilizes real-time PCR technology to accurately detect the presence of Feline Calicivirus (FCV) / Feline Herpesvirus (FHV). This PCR nucleic acid detection kit is known for its rapidity, sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy.
Feline Panleukopenia (FPV) / Coronavirus (FCoV) Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
Feline Coronavirus (FCoV) PCR for pets is a molecular diagnostic test used in veterinary medicine to detect the presence of Feline Coronavirus in cats. Feline Coronavirus is a common viral infection in cats that primarily affects the gastrointestinal system.The PCR test helps differentiate between the benign form of FCoV and the more severe form known as Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)-associated FCoV.
Feline Leukemia Virus (FelV) / Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)
FelV PCR is a molecular diagnostic test for pets, primarily cats, used to detect the presence of Feline Leukemia Virus (FelV). This test identifies the viral genetic material in samples, helping in the diagnosis and monitoring of FelV, a contagious virus that can lead to various health problems, including cancer and immunosuppression in cats.
Feline Flea Panel Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
Flea Panel PCR is a diagnostic test for pets, specifically cats, that detects the presence of various pathogens transmitted by fleas. This panel includes PCR testing for bacteria like Bartonella and Rickettsia, as well as viruses like Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), commonly associated with flea-borne diseases in cats.
Feline Respiratory Panel V Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
Respiratory V (lung infection) PCR is a diagnostic test for pets, specifically cats, that detects various respiratory pathogens causing lung infections. This panel includes PCR testing for common viruses like Feline Herpesvirus (FHV) and Feline Calicivirus (FCV), as well as bacteria like Mycoplasma and Chlamydophila, associated with feline respiratory diseases.
Feline Diarrhea Pathogen Panel Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
Diarrhea Panel PCR is a diagnostic test for pets, specifically cats, that detects various pathogens causing diarrhea. This panel includes PCR testing for bacteria like Clostridium, Campylobacter, and Salmonella, as well as parasites like Giardia and Cryptosporidium, commonly associated with gastrointestinal infections in cats.
Feline Coronavirus (FCoV) Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
The FLASHTEST PCR reagent kit utilizes real-time PCR technology to accurately detect the presence of Feline Coronavirus (FCoV). This PCR nucleic acid detection kit is known for its rapidity, sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy.
Feline Anemia IV Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
The FLASHTEST PCR reagent kit employs real-time PCR technology to accurately detect the presence of FeLV, FIV, M. Haemofelis, and B. henselae. This PCR nucleic acid detection kit is renowned for its fast, sensitive, specific, and accurate results.
Feline Respiratory VI Nucleic Acid Test Kit (Dry)
The FLASHTEST PCR reagent kit utilizes real-time PCR technology to accurately detect the presence of Feline Coronavirus (FCoV), Tritrichomonas foetus (T. f.), Giardia (GIA), Feline Panleukopenia Virus (FPV), Cryptosporidium (Crypto), and Astrovirus. By utilizing this technology and the FLASHTEST PCR reagent kit, we can accurately diagnose whether kittens carry FCoV, T. f., GIA, FPV, Crypto, or Astrovirus.

How to Use Feline PCR Test Kits?

To perform Feline PCR on a cat, follow these general steps:

1. Sample collection: Collect a suitable sample from the cat, such as blood, saliva, tissue, or swabs from the affected area. Follow appropriate sample collection techniques to ensure accuracy and minimize contamination.


2. DNA extraction: Extract DNA from the collected sample using a DNA extraction kit or other suitable methods. This step is essential to isolate and purify the cat's DNA for PCR analysis.


3. Primer design: Design and select appropriate primers specific to the target DNA sequence you want to amplify. These primers will flank the region of interest and allow for specific amplification.


4. PCR setup: Prepare the PCR reaction mixture, including the extracted DNA template, primers, nucleotides, and DNA polymerase. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific PCR kit used.


PCR cycling: Set up the PCR machine with the appropriate cycling parameters, including denaturation, annealing, and extension temperatures and times. Run the PCR
