A QUALITY, POINT-OF-CARE LEPTOSPIROSIS TEST THAT DELIVERS RAPID, RELIABLE RESULTS
WITNESS® Lepto detects the primary immune response (immunoglobulin M [IgM] antibodies) which develops within one week of exposure to canine leptospires.
TARGETS THE PREDOMINANT PRIMARY IMMUNE RESPONSE (IgM)

DEMONSTRATED TO DETECT IgM INDUCED BY FOUR IMPORTANT CANINE SEROVARS
|• Canicola||• Grippotyphosa|
|• Icterohaemorrhagiae||• Pomona|
BETTER ANTIBODY DETECTION IN EARLY EXPOSURE THAN MICROSCOPIC AGGLUTINATION TEST (MAT)1-3
*Seroconversion was seen in some dogs as early as day 7 for both methods. A minimum four-fold increase of antibody titer (>/=400) for any serovar of a 7-serovar MAT panel indicated seroconversion.
GREATER DETECTION RATES AT DAY 7 WITH WITNESS LEPTO COMPARED TO MAT1-3
