Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA)

EVA is caused by the Equine Arteritis Virus (EAV). Laboratory diagnosis is essential due to the variability or possible absence of clinical signs of EVA. Biobest use the the standard micro-neutralisation test to detect antibodies to EAV in blood samples tested. This is the OIE recommended test for international trade.

For more information on neutralisation tests, visit our VNT page.

The test is performed daily during the peak covering season, three times weekly at other times, and results are usually reported achieved 2-3 days. Urgent tests may be set up at additional times if required, please contact us to discuss this.
