Animal Health Webinars
Timely diagnosis of one sick animal can help ensure the health of an entire herd, protect a producer's livelihood, and safeguard a lab's business. Applied Biosystems™ VetMAX™ Xeno™ IPC and Assays are a novel solution for use with lab-designed assays, offering a verification layer to help ensure that the qPCR test results delivered to customers are accurate and actionable. The three presenters in this webinar will show how to incorporate Xeno internal positive control and assays into your qPCR workflow to help obtain accurate results.
This free on-demand webinar discusses the ear tag and testing process associated with the Bovine Viral Disease Virus (BVDV), and explores innovative workflow tools that are helping to optimize BVDV control programs. Our panel of presenters will explain why ear tagging systems, sample preparation solutions and qPCR tools are essential for the efficient monitoring and detection of BVDV, and they’ll introduce the newest TypiFix™ ear tagging and tissue sampling solutions for BVDV testing and genotyping.
Are you looking to find the best testing solutions to help farmers and veterinarians successfully detect mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) in ruminant herds? In this free on-demand webinar our presenters share their perspectives on paratuberculosis management, direct and indirect detection options, as well as insights into how detection solutions can be used to better control the disease in ruminant herds. Featured presenters include Petr Kralik, of the Veterinary Research Institute, Czech Republic.
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.
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.
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.
During this webinar you will learn how to help veterinarians adopt the right diagnostic approach to find infective causes of abortion. The discussion includes details about state-of-the-art diagnostic methods that can help support the correct diagnosis of infectious causes of abortion, a multi-pathogen PCR kit that can help with the diagnosis of these infections, and a Belgian study that shows the benefits of a standardized panel of analysis.
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.
In this webinar you will learn about the evolution of BVD programs, from eradication to monitoring, along with information about which diagnostic test methods can be used at each program stage. Additional focus will be placed on diagnostic test methods connected to European BVD programs, insights into how real-time PCR can be integrated into laboratories, and suggestions for optimizing workflows and sample-to-result handling within the lab.
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.
