Test Procedure
1. Used the swab to dip the normal saline and collect the sample from infection sites.
2. Then insert the swab to the buffer solution test tube immediately. Spin the swab until the reagent mix with the sample (not less than 10 times). Squeeze the swab on the inner tube wall to squeeze out the liquid.
3. Cover the lid and oscillate strongly for more than 30s, stand for precipitation about 5mins and absorb the supernatant as the sample.
4. Put the test card on the flat table, add 5 drops in the sample well carefully.
5. Read the result within 10-15 minutes. The result after 15 minutes is invalid.

Interpretation of Results
Positive: line C&T appear
Negative: only line C appear
Invalid: line T&C does not appear or only the line T appear.

Trivia questions : What is chlamydia?

Chlamydia suis

Swine Chlamydiosis is a chronic contact infectious disease caused by certain strains of Chlamydia psittaci (formerly known as Chlamydia psittaci), also known as epidemic abortion, Chlamydia suis abortion.

Chlamydia symptoms

The incubation period of the disease varies, ranging from a few days to as long as several weeks or even months.
Infections in pregnant sows cause premature delivery, stillbirth, miscarriage, inadequate placenta, infertility, and birth of weak or mummy fetuses. The incidence of primiparous sows is high, generally reaching 40% to 90%. Premature births occur in the first few weeks (100-104 days of gestation), and sows in the second trimester (50-80 days) can also have abortions. Sows usually have no symptoms before abortion, their body temperature is normal, and some show elevated body temperature (39.5 ~ 41.5 ℃). The piglets born partially or completely died, most of the live piglets were fragile, the birth weight was small, and the arch milk was weak. Most of them died within a few hours to one or two days after birth, and the mortality rate was sometimes as high as 70%. Boar reproductive system infections can occur with orchitis, epididymitis, urethritis and other reproductive tract diseases, sometimes with chronic pneumonia.

Chlamydia diagnosis

A preliminary diagnosis can be made based on the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and pathological changes of the disease, but laboratory diagnosis is required to confirm the diagnosis.
The disease should be related to some diseases that cause reproductive disorders such as swine fever, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome, Japanese encephalitis, porcine parvovirus infection, swine pseudorabies, swine flu, brucellosis, leptospirosis , Toxoplasmosis, Eperythrozoonosis, and other pathogens and mycotoxin-induced abortion and reproductive disorders should be distinguished from other non-infectious reproductive disorders due to poor feeding management and nutritional deficiencies.
When arthritis occurs, it should be distinguished from infections such as Rhizoctonia suis, Streptococcus suis, and Haemophilus parasuis.

Chlamydia suis type

There are many types of diseases caused by Chlamydia psittaci in pigs. In addition to single infections, there are often concurrent infections with other diseases, so the pathological changes are more complicated.

Abortion type

Endometrial hemorrhage and edema in sows with 1-1.5 cm necrotic foci, edema of subcutaneous connective tissue in the head, chest and scapula of aborted fetuses and dead newborn piglets, and serosa in the heart and lungs Under spot bleeding, catarrhal inflammation is often present in the lungs. The color and hardness of the testes of the affected boars changed, the inguinal lymph nodes were enlarged 1.5 to 2 times, the vas deferens had hemorrhagic inflammation, and the urethral epithelium was shed and necrotic.

Arthritis type

Joint swelling, hyperemia and edema around the joint, joint cavity filled with fibrous exudate, gray-yellow turbid liquid flowing out with acupuncture, mixed with gray-yellow flakes.

Bronchopneumonia type

Manifested as pulmonary edema, there are a large number of small bleeding spots and bleeding spots on the surface, scattered small black-red spots around the hilum, the sharp leaves and heart leaves are gray, solid and stiff, and the alveoli are incompletely dilated and there is a large amount of leakage Discharge, neutrophil infiltration. Mediastinal lymph node edema, bronchioles with a large number of bleeding points, and sometimes necrotic areas are visible.

Enteritis type

More common in aborted fetuses and newborn piglets, with acute focal catarrhal inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and bleeding changes in the ileum. The intestinal mucosa is inflamed and flushed. The small intestine and conjunctival serosa have gray-white serous cellulose coverings, and the mesenteric lymph nodes swell. The spleen has bleeding spots and is slightly enlarged. Liver is brittle with grayish white spots on the surface.

Chlamydia treatment

1. When the herd becomes ill, the sick pigs should be isolated in time, kept separately, and the stillbirths, placenta and other disease materials should be cleared and buried or cremated. Carbohydrate and formalin sprays were used to disinfect pig houses and delivery houses to eliminate pathogens.
2. Drug treatment: Tetracycline is the drug of choice, but chlortetracycline, oxytetracycline, erythromycin, spiramycin, and ofloxacin can also be used. For newborn piglets, 1% oxytetracycline can be injected intramuscularly, 1 ml per kilogram of body weight, once a day for 5 consecutive days. When piglets are weaned or sick, they are injected with a 5% oxytetracycline solution containing 5% glucose, 1 ml per kilogram of body weight, for 5 consecutive days.
Adding 15% chlortetracycline to the feed, 3 kg per ton of feed, will help control other secondary bacterial infections. In addition, the sow mixes tetracycline antibiotics in feed at a ratio of 0.02% to 0.04% 1 to 2 weeks before sow and 2 to 3 weeks before sow, which can increase the conception rate, increase the number of live piglets and reduce the number of newborn piglets Fatality rate.

Chlamydia prevention

1. Strict quarantine and monitoring are required when introducing breeding pigs. Positive breeding farms should restrict and prohibit the export of breeding pigs.
2. Do a good job of environmental sanitation and disinfection of pig farms.
3. Avoid contact with healthy pigs, infected pigs, and other susceptible mammals.
4. Sows were immunized with Chlamydia suis inactivated vaccine, and primiparous sows were immunized twice before mating, with an interval of 1 month. Immunized once before sow in sows.


Chlamydia suis disease is one of the common diseases in pigs, which not only poses a huge threat to the health of pigs, but also causes huge economic losses to the farming industry. At present, the main prevention methods for Chlamydia suis are vaccination and testing.
The Chlamydia Disease Test For Pigs (Ab) kit provided by BALLYA can effectively detect whether pigs have Chlamydia suis disease. This kit is not only simple to operate, but also has a short test time and high accuracy. Allow the veterinarian to respond accordingly.
