Guidelines for taking diagnostic samples from pigs
Thermo Fisher Scientific™ global diagnostic solutions include both ELISA and PCR tools that help you manage a wide range of production animal diseases.
To support veterinarians, we've created a series of best practice guides that outline how, where, and when to take samples from pigs for submission to diagnostic laboratories.
Ultimately, the laboratory performing the diagnostic test has the final say on the sample type and transport conditions of samples being submitted for testing. The reader of these guides should confirm with their specific testing laboratory that the collection methods and transport conditions are acceptable to the testing laboratory.
