Other Laboratory Services

In addition to traditional lab services such as parasitology and blood chemistry, Keseca offers in-house BVD testing and BioPRYN blood pregnancy tests.

BioPRYN is an enzyme-linked immunoabsorbant assay (ELISA) that detects levels of Pregnancy-specific B Protein (PSBP) in the serum of pregnant animals. This protein is only produced by the placenta in pregnant animals. While BioPRYN testing does not offer the same detailed information as ultrasonography (twin detection, evaluation of ovarian structures, assessment of fetal viability and fetal sexing), the test is 99% accurate with an OPEN diagnosis, and 95% accurate with a PREG diagnosis. BioPRYN samples are run once a week. Call the lab for details.

We also offer Brix testing of colostrum and serum total protein analysis to assess the effectiveness of your colostrum management program.
