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. Other breeds of dogs are less often infected and may have a history of fighting with a pit bull terrier. Diagnosis is most often made by identifying the organism on blood smears or through polymerase chain reaction testing. Serologic assays are less sensitive and specific. In many cases, treatment is frustrating, low levels of parasites remain, and a chronic subclinical carrier state develops.
This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of Babesia gibsoni, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of Babesia gibsoni.
