Research of Bartonella by real-time PCR.

Test indication

  • Diagnosis of feline bartonellosis (uveitis, endocarditis, lymphadenopathy, neurological disorders, etc.).
  • Detection of asymptomatic carriers (blood donor cats, live cats in contact with immunocompromised people).

Test characteristics

Samples to be taken

  • Diagnosis of feline bartonellosis
    • On a living animal: whole blood (EDTA), Aqueous humor (EDTA or dry), lymph node aspirate, cerebrospinal fluid (EDTA or dry), synovial fluid (EDTA or dry tubes), pericardial effusion (EDTA or dry tube)
    • On dead animal: to be determined based on clinical signs (blood, lymph node, aqueous humor, liver, CSF).
  • Determination of status of asymptomatic animals: whole blood (EDTA).

Interpretation of the result

  • Negative result: absence of the bacteria or quantity below the detection threshold of the technique.
  • Positive result: Presence of the bacteria in the sample. The positive results must be interpreted in the epidemiological-clinical context. The PCR test being quantitative, it is interesting in monitoring treatment in order to evaluate its effectiveness and to assess the risk of zoonosis.
