Animal Health Webinars
How your choice of PRRSV test impacts pig herd health & economics
Porcine reproductive respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) infections can contribute to significant economic loss, but those risks can be greatly minimized when reliable diagnostic tools are used for the monitoring and surveillance of PRRSV in pig herds. During this on-demand webinar, our presenters explain how to select the correct PRRSV diagnostic tools for your lab, detail the benefits of ELISA screening solutions, and answer questions about best practices, test result interpretation, and more.
A safer, cleaner and more reliable Trichinella testing method
In this free on-demand webinar our speakers discuss Trichinella control (methods, compartments, certification, trade codex and future developments) and share their personal experiences validating and using the Applied Biosystems™ PrioCHECK™ Trichinella AAD test kit with domestic pigs, wild boar and horse meat samples. The webinar also explains why the kit offers a safer, cleaner and more reliable Trichinella testing method for swine.
Swine flu: selecting optimized diagnostic tools
During this free on-demand webinar we explore the importance of finding an optimal set of diagnostic tools for the ongoing identification, surveillance, and characterization of the swine influenza virus (SIV). We also review molecular testing as a method to detect and subtype the influenza virus in pigs, potential sample types that can be used for SIV, and the use of next-generation sequencing data to aid in better virus surveillance.
Diagnosis of PRRS virus infection using oral fluids
This webinar will help you answer many practical questions concerning the use of oral fluids and shows the results of two porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) diagnostic studies in the field using oral fluids. It will also provide you with details regarding the detection of PRRSV in the field via oral fluids, practical tips for oral fluid sampling, and the interpretation of PCR test results for the detection of PRRSV.
USDA licensure and its importance to diagnostic testing
The USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulates veterinary biologics available for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of animal diseases to help ensure they are safe and effective. The APHIS Center for Veterinary Biologics carries out this work, focusing on enforcement of the Virus Serum Toxin Act. This webinar explains the USDA licensure process, and how USDA-licensed kits can benefit labs and veterinarians.
