Potential Labs

BioTracking’s BioPRYN assay has been commercially available for over 10 years. BioPRYN is the proven world leader in blood-based pregnancy testing. Applications of this technology have been documented in scientific and veterinary based publications since 1985. Based on years of experience in our own laboratory, we have designed the products for the high volume throughput laboratory. Our assays can be completed in multiple time frames allowing the laboratory to minimize technician time.

BioTracking scientists have over 40 years of combined experience in the discovery, development and application of proteins for detection of pregnancy in cows and other ruminants. When you need assistance with the BioPRYN assays you will receive direct access to this knowledge and expertise. Our chief emphasis is customer service to our diagnostic labs and their producer clients.

BioPRYN is an ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay) that detects Pregnancy Specific Protein B (PSPB) in sera/plasma and requires specific laboratory equipment that enables technicians to process large sample volume efficiently while limiting subjectivity. BioTracking can provide a full list of necessary and recommended equipment and supplies. On-site training is provided for new Affiliate Labs and ongoing online and phone support is always provided by the scientists and technicians who maintain, develop, and work with the assay on a daily basis.

ELISA Kits Offered

BioTracking currently offers two ELISA kits: BioPRYN (Cattle or Sheep & Goat assay) in 5 or 10 stripwell plates, and BioPRYNqk (rapid Cattle assay) in 5 or 10 stripwell plates.

    Test Kit   Number of Plates Per Kit   
 BioPRYN (Cattle; Sheep & Goat)    5 or 10 Stripwell Plates
 BioPRYNqk (rapid Cattle)    5 or 10 Stripwell Plates

Bovine ELISA Kits

BioPRYN

The BioPRYN ELISA is recommended for detection of pregnancy in cattle at or greater than 28 days post breeding and 73 days since last calf. The assay can be completed in a minimum assay time of 6.5 hours, but is most often completed by applying samples on day 1 and reporting the results in the morning/early afternoon of day 2. This antigen-capture, or “sandwich,” ELISA detects PSPB in bovine sera/plasma.

BioPRYNqk

The BioPRYNqk ELISA is recommended for detection of pregnancy in cattle at or greater than 28 days post breeding and 90 days since last calf. This assay can be completed with a minimum assay time of 2.5 hours. This antigen-capture, or “sandwich,” ELISA detects PSPB in bovine sera/plasma.

Ovine/Caprine ELISA Kits

BioPRYN

The BioPRYN ELISA is recommended for detection of pregnancy in sheep/goats at or greater than 30 days post breeding. The assay can be completed in a minimum assay time of 6.5 hours, but is most often completed by applying samples on day 1 and reporting the results in the morning/early afternoon of day 2. This antigen-capture, or “sandwich,” ELISA detects PSPB in ovine or caprine sera/plasma.
