Testing for does and kids infected with Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis (CAE) is an important investment in the health and performance of the flock. Producers make significant management and culling decisions based on CAE test results, so the test they use must be accurate and reliable.

BioTracking offers testing for CAE, which producers can administer by gathering blood samples. Both serum and plasma testing are proven means to detect on-farm presence of the virus.

The Veterinary Medicine Research & Development (VMRD) CAE test, performed by BioTracking, is a competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (cELISA) which detects antibodies of caprine arthritis encephalitis virus (CAE) in goat sera.

BioTracking believes that by providing CAE diagnosis along with pregnancy results, producers are ideally equipped with information to make the best management decisions possible
