The Witness Parvo Test Kit is a simple, in-clinic, Rapid Immuno-Migration (RIM™) test which detects all strains of canine parvovirus shed in the feces. Positive results with the fecal RIM™ test indicate the presence of canine parvovirus.
Results are quickly shown in 10 minutes or less. Clean and hygienic with no slapping or splashing, and no need to warm up, suitable for use at room temperature.
5 pouches, each containing 1 test device and desiccant
5 disposible sample extraction pipettes
1 extraction buffer bottle
Instructions for use
Remove the top portion, containing the cotton swab,from a sample extraction pipette
Dispense Extraction Buffer into the base of the sample extraction pipette until the buffer reaches the graduation mark
Taking the top portion of the sample extraction pipette, coat the cotton swab with a thin layer of faeces from a stool sample, or an anal swab
Insert the swab into the dispensed extraction buffer in the base of the sample extraction pipette
Securely fit the top portion onto the base and tap to mix for 5 seconds to ensure good sample extraction
Tear open the pouch provided and place the test device on a flat horizontal surface during the migra-tion of the samples
Snap the top of the sample extraction pipette (at the blue line) containing the extracted faecal sample
Invert and hold the sample extraction pipette in a vertical (upright) position and squeeze the base gently to dispense five drops of sample to the sample well (Window (1)
If migration does not pass Window (2) by one minute,add one additional drop of sample in Window (1)
Wait 10 minutes, then observe the presence orabsence of purple bands in Windows (2) and (3)
Sample results are read in Window (2)
The control band is read in Window (3)
The test is complete and may be read before 10minutes if purple bands are visible in both Windows (2) and (3). The presence of a purple band only in Window (3) before 10 minutes does not mean that the test is complete. A purple band in Window (2) may develop slower than the control purple band in Window (3).
Negative- A sample is negative for Canine Parvovirusantigen, if there is no purple band visible in Window(2) and a purple band in Window (3)
Positive- A sample is positive for Canine Parvovirusantigen if there is one purple band visible in Window(2) and one purple band in Window (3)
Note : A test is valid if a purple band is present in Window (3). If there is no purple band in Window (3),the test is invalid and should be repeated.
Remember : A test result should always be interpreted in the context of all available clinical information and history for the dog being tested.
