Veterinary laboratory

Today PENTAVET has more than 20 national and European zoos (zoos, aquariums and natural parks).

Clinical analysis and veterinary molecular diagnostics

PENTA Centro de Análisis Clínicos y Diagnóstico Molecular, created a specialised Veterinary Department, PENTAVET, which focuses its activity on offering high quality diagnostic services to clients in the specific field of Zoos, Aquariums and Natural Parks. PENTAVET has specialised human and technological resources that have allowed us to incorporate new, highly innovative and efficient analytical techniques.
PENTAVET’s Service Areas deal with routine techniques and, since the end of 2010, we have also incorporated the Veterinary Molecular Microbiology Area, which allows multiple applications for health and safety in the individualised treatment of each animal.
PENTAVET has a seroteca service that allows the expansion of determinations to be analysed avoiding the need to obtain second samples.

Our tests

Veterinary genetics and molecular microbiology

The incorporation to our catalogue of tests based on the Real Time PCR polymerase method and Microarray systems allows us to have more than 130 microbiological determinations and molecular genetic panels that make it possible to achieve an index of specificity and depth in the result that ensures a better diagnosis.

Analytical methods

  • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR): Sequencing of specific DNA strands.
  • Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR): In real-time PCR, the amplification and detection processes occur simultaneously, in the same closed vial, without the need for any subsequent action.
Diagnostic Objective

  • Detection, identification and quantification of viral and bacterial pathogenic micro-organisms.
  • Sex determination in birds

Test catalogues

  • Veterinary molecular microbiology
  • Veterinary profiles
  • Veterinary tests
  • Exotic animals
