Enterotoxaemia is a fatal enteric disease that affects all species of domestic animals and is attributable to a toxigenic type of Clostridium perfringens.

The latter is an anaerobic, strongly gram-positive bacterium that has the ability to form heat-resistant endospores.
This bacterium is grouped into five types (types A, B, C, D and E) according to the four major lethal toxins, alpha, beta, epsilon, and iota produced.

C.perfringens has been shown to be a cause of human diseases such as gas gangrene (clostridial myonecrosis), food poisoning, necrotising enterocolitis of infants, and enteritis necroticans (pigbel).
It is also the causative agent of lamb dysentery, ovine enterotoxaemia (struck) and pulpy kidney disease of sheep, and other enterotoxaemic diseases of lambs and calves. Large amounts of toxin in addition to large numbers of C.perfringens cells can usually be detected in the intestinal fluid of the diseased or dead animals.
As C.perfringens is a natural commensal of human and animal intestines, identifying of the bacterium is not enough. Toxinotyping and quantifying of the isolated strains are essential.

The kit works with culture as well as biological probes such as liquid intestinal contents and pericardial- or peritoneal fluid. Stools could also be used.

The BIO K 195 kit contains a monoclonal antibody specific for a constitutional protein of C.perfringens . It gives positive signals when quantities of C.perfringens in samples is abnormally high.

==Use of the kit== The kit is designed to detect ''Clostridium perfringens'' in biological fluids or in culture supernatants.

==Reliable Results== The use of monoclonal antibodies as conjugates and to capture the pathogens on the strip ensures excellent specificity and very reliable results.

==Ease-of-Use== *Minimal hands-on-time *Room temperature incubation *Results available in 10 minutes
