The independent study evaluated the quality and practicability of four point-of-care tests for the detection of anti-CPV antibodies. Specificity was the most significant indicator since the detection is used to show the specific immune status of an adult dog. If antibodies are present, unnecessary vaccinations can be avoided. A total of 241 dog sera were tested. Virus neutralization was used as the reference method.
Due to its specificity of 98% and ease of performance, the CanTiCheck test became the test of choice.
