We offer BioPRYN's blood-based pregnancy testing in for a variety of animals including; cattle, goats, sheep, bison, yak, buffalo, elk, deer, moose, caribou and African antelope. This test offers a safe, accurate, and easy alternative for confirming pregnancy. BioPRYN measures the presence of Pregnancy-Specific Protein B (PSPB), a protein only produced by the placenta of a growing fetus, in the blood circulation of the animal.
The BioPRYN test can identify pregnant animals early in gestation, but the timing is dependent on species. BioPRYN for cattle is good just 25 days after insemination in virgin heifers and 28 days in cows. Cows must also have calved at least 73 days prior to testing. BioPRYN for goats and sheep is good at 30 days post insemination. BioPRYN for bison, yak and buffalo can be used after 40 days. BioPRYN wild for wildlife including elk, deer, moose, caribou and African antelope can also be used after 40 days of pregnancy.
