ELISA for whipworm antigen detection

IDEXX Laboratories has introduced technology to detect more whipworm infections in dogs earlier than current diagnostic methods. The ELISA for whipworm antigen detection is capable of directly detecting the presence of an adult whipworm parasite. Previously, diagnostic tests could detect whipworm infections only by the presence of eggs in feces. Data shows that the Whipworm Antigen ELISA can detect more than double the number of infections in dogs when run with traditional ova and parasite testing, allowing for earlier diagnosis, management and treatment.
