BoVir(R) Named Best New Veterinary Diagnostics Product in International Animal Pharm Awards
Date:10/1/2007

NAAS, Ireland, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- A highly sensitive, easy-to-use test that accurately detects bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) was selected as the Best New Veterinary Product for Diagnostics in the annual Animal Pharm Awards. BoVir(R) BVDV real time PCR test was selected for its excellence and innovation by an independent judging panel representing members of the global community of animal sciences practitioners and professionals. The award was presented September 25, 2007, during a black-tie ceremony at Gibson Hall, London, UK.

The newly available BVDV test was developed by AnDiaTec GmbH of Germany, and is distributed globally by Enfer Diagnostics. According to Animal Pharm, the worldwide news service for the animal health industries and sponsor of the competition, "the panel of judges believed that BoVir made eradication of BVDV a realistic option for cattle producers."

"We are very pleased that BoVir(R) has been recognized as a diagnostic test that provides veterinarians, laboratories, and herd managers with an accurate, one-step, and cost-effective solution for successful BVDV eradication," said AnDiaTec developmental geneticist and company owner, Dr. Johannes Kehle upon accepting the award. "Now a farmer can be sure that BVDV detection is early, accurate, and reliable."

According to the judges, BoVir(R) was selected as best in the diagnostic category for its ability to address the four key issues that make current BVDV detection problematic -- the test is easy to use, it's highly sensitive and specific, it provides unprecedented early detection of the virus, and it produces the most advanced genotype and strain diversity detection.

"Our unique, proprietary lysis buffer eliminates the need for the costly, labor-intensive, and time-consuming RNA extraction step, which further eliminates the complicated error-prone steps often associated with inhibiting high throughput molecular labs," said Dr. Kehle. "In addition, BoVir(R)'s ability to detect all 68 referenced strains provides the vet lab, veterinarian, and farmer the confidence that positives will be detected and that negatives are actually negatives."

The award acceptance by AnDiaTec and Enfer Diagnostics was followed by a September 26, 2007, grand opening celebration of the new Enfer Diagnostics Research and Operations Center in Naas, Ireland. The 50,000 square-foot vet diagnostics manufacturing, logistics, customer training, customer service and operations center also provides services focused on vet diagnostic research and development, European and global technical support, lab process integration testing and validation, and lab diagnostic training. The center also serves as an industry partner alignment center and expects to employ over 300 workers within the next 24 to 30 months.

"Enfer Diagnostics is committed to exceeding the needs of the large animal producer and the veterinary diagnostic laboratories with our world-class Enfer Diagnostics Research and Operations Center," stated Cliff Cain, Enfer Diagnostics President. "Animal Pharm's independent review and subsequent 2007 New Product of the Year award validates our decision to bring state-of-the-art molecular diagnostic products for use in large-animal production operations."

More than 200 local, national, and international dignitaries attended the grand opening, including key veterinary opinion leaders and Ireland's Prime Minister Bertie Ahearn.
