How It Works

The IDEXX HerdChek® test is based on the gp48 antigen, also called the Erns antigen, for detection of Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus (BVDV). This antigen is highly stable and resistant to heat, freezing or other environmental influences. It is also secreted in large amounts by the virus and is readily available in serum and skin tissue.

Results of the test on submitted samples can be received via fax, e-mail, or phone. BioTracking will report test results following sample receipt as scheduled here.
