Preputial or vaginal wash, culture isolate
1-3 business days from test day
This assay targets the DNA of a portion of the ISCfe-1 gene from the bacterium C. fetus subsp. venerealis, the agent of bovine genital campylobacteriosis (vibrio).
Note: If submitting a preputial washing for both Tritrichomonas and C. venerealis testing, samples cannot be pooled for either test as there is not enough processed specimen for individual testing if positive.
*Each additional test is $15.
