The GiaSpp dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Giardia spp. detection by using qPCR. Giardia is a flagellate protozoon that causes enteric infection giardiasis in dogs and occasionally cats, reptiles and humans; it is a condition of significant zoonotic concern. Clinical signs are most likely to be seen in younger or immunocompromised animals as healthy hosts are usually infected asymptomatically. Signs vary from acute to chronic or intermittent diarrhoea. Transmission is via cysts that are shed in the faeces or water.
