BIONOTE launches a new cartridge for the diagnosis of two feline retroviruses.




▶Planning to maximize the market share in on-site POC molecular diagnostics by expanding the product portfolio.

BIONOTE announced on the 5th of March that they have launched ‘Vcheck M FIV/FeLV’ which is for diagnosing Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) / Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV). 

M10 is an automatic analyzer that can perform both nucleic acid extraction and PCR, which previously needed to be performed separately using two different machines. The test procedure is simple enough for any veterinarian to perform on-site at the animal hospitals without separate prior training.


Furthermore, depending on the user's needs, they can customize how many modules they would like to use, up to a maximum of 8, making the M10 suitable for small hospitals, large hospitals, and even labs.


A BIONOTE Spokesperson commented, “Following the launch of Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) cartridge, we will now be actively expanding the export internationally starting this month.” And that “We will accelerate the sales activity with 'Canine Vector 8 panel' and 'Canine Anemia 8 panel’ and strengthen our portfolio with the POC molecular diagnostic products, including 'Diarrhea 8 panel', which will be released this year. Our goal is to maximize our global market share in the veterinary field of molecular diagnostics as well”. 

Meanwhile, BIONOTE also aims to domestically launch a diagnostic cartridge with Babesia gibsoni which is known as causing a fatal tick-borne disease in dogs. BIONOTE is currently developing various test panels such as respiratory, anemia-causing pathogens and panels for livestock animals.
