BioTracking LLC continues to improve its industry leading pregnancy detection technology for use in ruminant animals. Advances by BioTracking researchers have allowed the company to update the BioPRYN blood pregnancy test to determine the pregnancy status of livestock as early as 73 days post-calving, reducing the wait time for pregnancy diagnosis post-calving by 17 days.When applied at 28 days or more post-breeding and 73 days post-calving, the new test is more than 99 percent accurate when an animal is determined to be open.

This accuracy provides producers with the complete confidence they need to return cows identified as open to their breeding program.

The new test is now available through BioTracking’s affiliate lab network. This network is the largest and most experienced laboratory system in the United States.

Trained in all aspects of the new test and its application for beef and dairy cattle herds, each affiliate lab can answer and troubleshoot any BioPRYN question.

This product update will allow producers greater flexibility in utilizing the new pregnancy test post-calving, creating more opportunity to increase reproductive efficiencies in herds by identifying open cows earlier than previously possible. PD
