Diarrhoea is a major cause of mortality in young cattle under one month.
Bovine neonatal gastroenteritis is a multifactorial disease.
It can be caused by viruses : coronavirus or rotavirus, by bacteria : ''Salmonella'' or ''E. coli'' F5 (K99), or by protozoan microorganisms such as ''Cryptosporidium parvum''.

The diagnosis of the etiological agent of diarrhoea can only be performed in the laboratory because clinical signs do not allow to differentiate between the different microorganisms.
It is possible to identify Cryptosporidium parvum by means of floating or staining techniques (Ziehl Neelsen modified).
However, these techniques are labor intensive and unpracticle.
These classical techniques have rapidly been replaced by the ELISA technology because of its simplicity, and the limited requirements in laboratory equipment.
Nevertheless, ELISA can be time consuming and expensive especially when small number of analysis has to be performed.
Chromatographic vertical flow immunoassay is becoming the gold standard for gastroenteritis diagnosis because of its simplicity, rapidity, sensitivity and specificity.
Laboratory equipment required is limited. Results compared with classical techniques are rather similar in terms of diagnosis and strips are far easier to use.

==Use of the kit== The kit is designed to detect ''Cryptosporidium parvum'' in young ruminants stool.
It also could be used with other species.

==Reliable Results== The use of monoclonal antibody as conjugate and to capture Cryptosporidium ookysts on the strip ensures excellent specifi city and very reliable results.

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