Founded in 1981 with the vision of creating superior veterinary diagnostics kits and related reagents, VMRD boasts the most comprehensive portfolio of veterinary diagnostics products worldwide. These include USDA-licensed ELISA kits, immunofluorescence reagents, antibodies, and Coombs testing reagents, with a strong focus on canine, feline, bovine, porcine, and equine. VMRD has a strong market reputation for delivering best in class products and services and, as a result, has had a global impact on improvements in animal welfare. At 2BScientific, we frequently receive enquiries from researchers seeking veterinary diagnostic products to monitor disease, and we have no hesitation in endorsing VMRD to supply these. Recently, we’ve recommended VMRD’s ELISA kits to laboratories wishing to accurately detect antibodies specific to conditions including bluetongue and foot and mouth disease, and we’ve also suggested VMRD’s antibodies to monitor antigens such as canine distemper and feline immunodeficiency virus.

  • 100% guaranteed
  • ISO Certified

VMRD has partnered with Longhorn Vaccines and Diagnostics to provide critical Molecular Transport Media (MTM) to the veterinary market. The PrimeStore® MTM is a FDA approved medical device that is validated for the use in COVID-19 qPCR testing. Its patented buffer successfully inactivates virus and bacteria by destroying enzymes and proteins and disrupts lipid membranes thus, stabilizing nucleic acid. This inactivation provides stability and safe handling to transport potentially infectious material.

Product features

  • Confidently perform sensitive PCR testing; stabilization ensures sample quality to begin with.
  • Eliminates containment need; samples can be handled in a BLS1 setting.
  • Eliminates extra inactivation/heating steps that reduces nucleic acid quality and quantity.
  • Eliminates cold chain transport; sample is stable at 2-25°C for up to 30 days.
  • Works with commonly used spin column and magnetic bead-based extraction kits.
  • Bank samples in cold storage. Media maintains nucleic acid stability.
  • Available format: 50 pack of 1.5 mL in a 5 mL tube, 1L bottle, 20 L box.

A new serology solution from VMRD for Johne’s disease

Johne’s disease is a chronic and highly contagious wasting disease of all ruminants caused by Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis (MAP). Major clinical signs include weight loss, pipestream diarrhea, edema, decreased milk production, and eventually death.

In the US, Johne’s disease affects ~70% of dairy herds[1], costing the industry up to $250 million per year in production loss[2]. An estimated 5-10% of beef herds are also affected[3]. Currently, no effective vaccines or specific treatments are available, making proper diagnostic testing pivotal for management efforts.
