IDEXX Reference Laboratories has introduced RealPCR tests for feline anemia and feline upper respiratory disease. The feline hemotropic mycoplasma (FHM) test uses real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methodology to detect Mycoplasma haemofelis, Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum, and Candidatus Mycoplasma turicensis and provides a more sensitive result than microscopic evaluation. Practitioners get results in one to three days. The feline upper respiratory disease panel also uses real-time PCR methodology and detects the five most common organisms causing feline upper respiratory disease. For more, visit idexx.com/realpcr.
