Fassisi ParCo is an immunological rapid test that detects antigens of the canine and feline parvovirus (CPV and FPV) and the canine and feline coronavirus (CCV and FCoV). The test directly detects the antibodys of the pathogens in a few minutes. Furthermore the Fassisi ParCo can be used directly on-site and it can be stored between 2 and 30 degrees.
The CPV matches the FPV in 99% of its DNA structure. The same agreement also applies to the two coronavirus species CCV and FCoV. For this reason, these two pathogens can be detected for both animal species with one detection.
The Fassisi ParCo rapid test can be used directly on site and shows very quickly whether the patient is suffering from a parvovirus or corona virus infection. This is particularly important for an infection with the parvovirus, because diseased animals show an increased mortality rate. However, if the animal is treated quickly, the chance of survival can be increased to up to 90%.
In addition, it is not always possible to distinguish between a parvovirus and a coronavirus infection on the basis of the symptoms alone, because the symptoms are often very similar. Here the Fassisi ParCo assists in diagnostics too.
