AVIAN DISEASE TESTING SERVICES

Avian Diseases

Early detection and quarantine of infectious diseases helps prevent the devastating effects that a bacterial, fungal, parasitic or viral outbreak can cause. At risk are aviaries, nurseries, pet-shops, bird shows, quarantine stations, brokers, zoos, medical facilities and bird hospitals. In addition, people working at or visiting these places can transmit the infectious agents to other locations.

 

Accuracy of Our Disease Testing

In a blind study published in The Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery conducted by Dr. Geoff Olsen and Dr. Brian Speer Animal Genetics / Avian Biotech was the only laboratory to get a perfect score on all positive and negative test results. One lab reported 8 out of ten negative samples as positive.
