Analysis & Tests

Blood Serology

At Sci-Tech Laboratories we are aware of the increasing pressure being put onto farmers by supermarkets and processors and, to help, we have developed a range of key porcine diagnostic tests. The tests chosen reflect current interest in these organisms. PRRS and APP testing is designed for herd monitoring purposes, often in conjunction with medication and/or vaccination in conjunction with your veterinary surgeon. The situation with Salmonella in pigs is a topical one with increasing pressure likely for testing procedures to be implemented. M.hyo testing is also used for herd profiling or to confirm a suspected disease.

Sci-Tec Laboratories offers a comprehensive range of serology tests for the porcine sector using a range of techniques and analytical methodologies in line with relevant legislation and regulations.

Should you have any specific requirement regarding porcine serology please contact us, as we would be pleased to advise on the availability.
