Babesia canis is a parasite that infects red blood cells and can lead to anemia. This is a species that falls under the overarching genus Babesia. It is transmitted by the brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and is one of the most common piroplasm infections.
Babesia gibsoni is a tickborne protozoal blood parasite that causes hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, lethargy, and splenomegaly. In the United States, the disease primarily affects American pit bull terriers and is often subclinical.
This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of Babesia canis and Babesia gibsoni, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of Babesia canis and Babesia gibsoni.
