Test Kit for Detecting EHP, a Microsporidian Disease


From Abstract: GeneReach Biotechnology Corporation’s IQ Plus kit for Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP) could be used to monitor any potential threats of white feces disease by screening for the presence of EHP in water and shrimp.


Performance of IQ Plus Kit in detecting EHP in feces and PLs was comparable to that of a published nested PCR detection method.
