The mAbDx Vibriosis RapidTest has been used to help elucidate the role of the opportunistic marine bacterial pathogen Vibrio coralliilyticus in stony coral tissue loss disease (SCTLD)

Mon 26 October 2020

The mAbDx Vibriosis RapidTest was used to help demonstrate that Vibrio coralliilyticus may be causing coinfections that exacerbate existing SCTLD lesions, and therefore may contribute to intraspecific differences observed between colonies. The study shows the potential of the Vibriosis RapidTest as a diagnostic tool capable of tracking the pathogen involved in SCTLD and contributing to understanding and management of the disease.
