Diagnostic Test Format

Diagnostics exist in various formats, depending on the disease and the market. An ideal diagnostic should differentiate animals that have been vaccinated or simply exposed to antigenic molecules of an infectious agent from those with an active infection. An ideal test is one that can be conducted in a single-step procedure, with the result observable in minutes as either clearly positive or negative based on visual inspection, with minimal requirement for sophisticated equipment, processing, or technical expertise.
