The Speed Trio FeLV/FIV/Corona technology enables a combined detection of FeLV soluble viral antigens, antibodies directed against FIV and antibodies directed against feline coronavirus.

Quick and easy Speed Trio FeLV/FIV/Corona can be performed in the clinic, in one step and in only 15 minutes.

Speed Trio FeLV/FIV/Corona can be stored 24 months at rooms temperature, between 2°C and 30°C.

Why to use Speed Trio FeLV/FIV/Corona ?

The retroviruses (FeLV and FIV) and Feline Coronavirus infection (FCoV) are considered major causes of mortality in cats.

  • Retroviruses and coronaviruses often remain asymptomatic after initial infection

  • FeLV, FIV and FCoV infections are considered as the main causes of feline immune-suppression

  • FeLV, FIV and FCoV lead to alike, non-specific clinical signs [6] which make differential diagnosis confusing: anemia, anorexia, loss of weight, chronic respiratory or gastro-intestinal disease...

When to use Speed Trio FeLV/FIV/Corona ?

Speed Trio FeLV/FIV/Corona is a rapid test to help vet-practitioners to narrow diagnosis in front of unspecific but suggestive symptoms of retrovirosis and/or coronavirosis and to select further clinical examinations.

In multi-cat environments, the determination of the status of new arrivals can be used to prevent healhy cats from being exposed to the virus.

Speed FeLV/FIV/Corona is recommended for the monitoring of cats which leave in high risk environments.
