Molecular Diagnostics


The molecular diagnostic laboratory section performs PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing for the detection and characterization of animal pathogenic bacteria and viruses. This section also includes a bio-safety level 3 laboratory that is designed to contain samples which require a higher degree of biosecurity, i.e. suspected agents of foreign animal and zoonotic disease such as, Classical Swine Fever (CSF), Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD), Porcine Delta-Coronavirus (PDCoV), Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV), Turkey Coronavirus (TCV), and West Nile Virus (WNV). Samples are tested by both real time and conventional PCR techniques. Reference Lab User Guide for test offerings.
