The IDEXX SNAPBVD Test for Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus (BVDV) is a simple, on-farm or in-clinic test that detects BVDV antigen in just 20 minutes using large ear-notch samples. Veterinarians can use the USDA-licensed SNAP BVD Test to quickly determine the status of individual animals or as part of a BVDV herd management program to help control the spread of BVDV in dairy and beef herds.
The SNAP BVD Test uses proven ELISA technology and is the first IDEXX rapid assay for livestock disease. This simple, 20-minute test gives veterinarians a proven tool to determine the status of any new introduction to a herd, including newborn calves and replacement heifers, and either confidently allow an uninfected animal to join the herd or an infected animal to quickly be quarantined.
The speed and simplicity of the SNAP BVD Test make it easy for veterinarians to add BVDV testing to their visits. Using this rugged, in-hand diagnostic tool, they can ultimately deliver better disease management for their clients. IDEXX recommends a BVDV management protocol for veterinarians and producers that includes determining the status of the herd, testing all new introductions with the SNAP BVD Test and working together to create a biosecurity program to ensure herds remains BVDV-free.
The IDEXX SNAP BVD Test is now available in the United States and other countries.
