EC24-114: Development of a Rapid Cage Side FIP Diagnostic Test: Viral Protease Biosensing.

Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) was a historically fatal disease of cats; however, recent treatments have been developed to help treat this disease. With treatment options the need for rapid, in clinic tests became even more in demand as currently invasive and delayed diagnosis such as biopsies are used to diagnose FIP. This study aims to develop a an accurate, quick, in-clinic, cost-effective test for FIP that is relatively easy to perform. (Bria Fund)
