We developed an immunochromatographic test (ICT) with the full-length of thrombospondin-related adhesive protein of Babesia gibsoni expressed by the modified expression method. The developed ICT showed high sensitivity, specificity, and kappa value with a reference test (100%, 93.78%, and 0.8976, respectively), indicating that the ICT could be a new practical diagnostic test for B. gibsoni infection.
