Test procedure
1. Pipetting the whole blood, centrifuge for 5-15 minutes at 3000 r/m to separate the serum. It can also be left standing overnight at 4ºc to separate out the serum.
2. Let the test card at room temperature, take out and place it on the flat desk.
3. Take 10ul (as the black mark on the capillary) of the serum into the sample well, and immediately add a drop of diluent by the diluents dropper.
4. Please wait for 5-10s.
5. Add 3 drops of diluents into the screening hole.
6. Stand for 10-15 minutes and read the result. 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 C appear.

    Trivia questions : What is hydatid disease?

    Hydatid disease

    Hydatid disease, also known as Echinococcus disease, is a disease caused by larvae infected by Echinococcus granulosus. The disease is zoonotic. Dogs are the ultimate hosts, and sheep and cattle are the intermediate hosts. Humans develop hydatid disease by eating insect eggs by mistake.

    Hydatid cyst liver

    Hepatic hydatid cysts are more common in pastoral areas. Populations in South America, Southern Europe, and Australia are most often related to shepherds, Iran and Iraq are related to camels, and Canada and Alaska may be related to reindeer. The human hepatic hydatid cyst is the asexual phase of Echinococcus granulosus with a human as an intermediate host. The main hosts of this roundworm are dogs, foxes or wolves, and the intermediate hosts are sheep, cattle, horses, pigs and humans. This worm is parasitic on the villi of the small intestine of dogs. Adults continue to emit six-hoop tadpoles protected by the shell. This tadpole is discharged with feces and adheres to dog hair or wool. Humans or other intermediate hosts can become infected by contacting and swallowing the contaminated water or food. They are digested by the stomach or upper small intestine. A few escape to the lungs and other organs.


    Echinococcus is the cystic larva of Ascaris, most commonly parasitized in the liver.

    Echinococcus cyst

    There are three types of Echinococcus cyst, namely, capsular single chamber, headless sac and multilocular cyst. The former is more common in sheep and pigs. The cyst is spherical or irregular in shape, ranging in size from peas to human heads. They have obvious boundaries with surrounding tissues. There is a sense of fluctuation when touched, the walls of the sac are tense, and there is some elasticity. Colorless transparent liquid; sometimes a headless echinococcus can be seen in cattle, called headless sac hydatid. Echinococcus multilocularis occurs mostly in cattle, almost all in the liver, and sometimes also in pigs; this echinococcus is characterized by small cyst, dense clusters, grape-like clusters, and only yellow honey-like gelatinous cysts Things without a head.

    Echinococcus infection

    It is a parasitic disease caused by larvae of people infected with Echinococcus. There are two main types of Edgiococcus parasitic on the human body, including granular E.coli, and Vesicular E.coli (or multiple families). The former is more common in China. Echinococcus disease is a zoonotic disease that mainly affects the liver, followed by the lung, and may also be affected in other parts. The disease is found almost all over the world. China is mainly distributed in the animal husbandry-dominated areas in northwestern China.

    Echinococcus diagnosis

    The clinical symptoms alone do not usually confirm the diagnosis. When disease is suspected in an endemic area, X-ray or ultrasound can be used. An allergy can also be diagnosed, ie fresh hydatid e-cyst fluid is sterile filtered without protozoa and injected intradermally into the neck of cow O. 2 ml, observed 5-10 minutes after injection, if the skin appears erythema and swelling or edema positive, the accuracy of this method is 70%.

    Echinococcus liver cyst

    The clinical manifestations are not obvious. They are more common in young and middle-aged people. They may be asymptomatic at first. As the cysts increase, they can spread to upper abdominal masses, bloating, and abdominal pain. If the patient is in the upper right liver, respiratory symptoms may occur due to diapragm muscle elevation. Many patients have symptoms of allergic reactions. A few cause jaundice due to compression of the gallbladder cyst. There are also co-infection or cholangitis or sepsis. People who penetrate the chest may experience respiratory symptoms or bronchial fistulas. The signs are mainly cystic masses of the upper abdomen, and large cystic masses of the liver can only be seen above the liver.

    Echinococcus granulosus

    Echinococcus granulosus life cycle

    Echinococcus granulosus must rely on two mammalian hosts to complete its life cycle. Dogs are the most important final host, and wild predators such as wolves, jackals, and foxes can also be their final hosts. Intermediate hosts are mainly artiodactyl animals such as sheep, cattle, and pigs, and they can also infect wild herbivores, kangaroos, and rodents. Animals. Although humans are good intermediate hosts for Echinococcus granulosus, they are usually only victims and do not participate in the life history cycle. Some ethnic minorities have the habit of burial and water burial. At this time, people may also participate in the cycle of the worm's life history.

    Echinococcus granulosus egg

    Wild animals such as domestic dogs and foxes are the main sources of infection. Dogs are infected by ingesting the viscera of sick animals. Eggs from sick dogs pollute the natural environment such as pastures, water sources, and animal products such as wool. People get infected by coming into contact with domestic dogs or eating water, vegetables or other food contaminated with eggs.

    Echinococcus granulosus treatment treatment
    Surgery is the preferred method of treating the disease and treatment should be sought before symptoms or compression complications develop. Hydatidosis of the lungs, brain and bones should also be cleared. Some people abroad use deltamethrin to kill protozoa. It is considered to be an ideal protozoan tin agent, which has the advantages of low toxicity and good effect.
    2. Drug treatment
    Benzimidazole is an anti-echinodermal drug that has been studied at home and abroad in recent years. Albendazole and mebendazole are the drugs of choice against. Albendazole is well absorbed. 30 days is a course of treatment, which depends on several consecutive courses of the disease. This course is better than mebendazole, especially pulmonary hydatid disease. For alveolar echinococcus disease, some people in China recommend the long-term use of higher doses of albendazole. The course of treatment is 17 to 66 months (average 36 months). However, liver, kidney function, and bone marrow should be followed during treatment. Not suitable for pregnant women.

    Echinococcus granulosus prevention

    The biological characteristics of Echinococcus granulosus determine its low biological potential and its life cycle is easily affected by intervention measures.
    1. Strengthen and popularize health education.
    2. Implement registration management for domestic dogs and strictly control ownerless dogs.
    3. Treat sick dogs.
    4. Strictly manage the market and family slaughter to prevent domestic dogs from coming into contact with organs infected by hydatids.


    For a long time, Hydatid disease was considered to be a zoonotic parasitic disease, known as an animal-borne disease. Threats to human, livestock and pet health.
    The Bovine Echinococcus Granulosus Rapid Test kit provided by BALLYA can effectively detect whether pets have hysteria. The kit is not only simple to operate, but also has short detection time and high accuracy, so that the veterinarian can understand the dog's physical condition and take appropriate treatment measures in time.
