  • Able to detect all serotypes because of the common and specific toxin ApxIV
  • No cross-reactivity with other bacteria
  • Excellent tool to detect the MDA level looking for the correct vaccination scheme
  • DIVA system for differentiation of infected from vaccinated animals
  • Ready-to-use reagents
  • Easy data management when used with xChek® software
  • Specific for screening
