Veterinary Rapid Test Market - Introduction

Veterinary rapid tests are designed for preliminary screening of animals such as dogs, cats, bovine, and cattle. The test is carried out by placing a sample on the specimen well present on the device. The results are obtained once the antigen-antibody interaction completes, resulting in a visible indicator on the device. These rapid test kits are able to provide efficient detection of pathogens in a short duration of time; around 5 minutes to 10 minutes.

Rapid test kits are individually controlled having a long shelf life and can be used at suitable temperature. Rapid tests are designed to detect either antibodies or antigens present in a given sample. Different types of sample used along with rapid test kits are serum, plasma, feces, whole blood plasma, conjunctiva swabs, urine, nasal fluid, and others. Veterinary rapid tests are highly specific and sensitive. The specificity of these rapid tests ranges from 90% to 100%, while sensitivity ranges from 85% to 90% in a given rapid test kit.

The global veterinary rapid test market is driven by new product launches, rise in awareness about veterinary health, increase in strategic alliances between distributors and manufacturers, surge in pet ownership, and rise in prevalence and incidence of zoonotic diseases. Factors restraining the global market are lack of reimbursement, less awareness about animal health in low income countries, and inadequate infrastructure in many parts of the globe.
