What is bActivate?
bActivate is a bacterial growth medium able of re-activating dormant streptococcal infections in the uterus of brood mares.
When to use?
5-15% of all mares are not pregnant at the end of the breeding season, despite fertilised stallions and supervised by experienced veterinarians.
How to use?
bActivate is to be used in mares with reduced uterine defense mechanisms and in mares suspected of having a chronic subclinical infection.
The Men Behind bActivate
Ten percent of all mares struggle to get in foal. Now two Danish researchers have identified what might be wrong and produced a product, which can facilitate diagnostics. Veterinarians at the world’s largest equine hospital in Kentucky have successfully tested the product.
One of the most frequent causes of infectious endometritis in the mare is Streptococcus equisubspecies zooepidemicus (Strep zoo). An estimated 5% of mares carry a subclinical Strep zoo infection caused by dormant Strep zoo residing deep in the endometrium...
Potent new tool for the problem mare!
“bActivate enabled us to identify chronically infected mares, which were found to be clean on culture and cytology using routine diagnostics. We will use it for our problem mares in the coming season.”

“I used bActivate in 2016 and after one covering got a COLT foal in 2017 (after 3 years of hardship ie mare went in foal but never managed to produce a live foal).”
