The USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulates veterinary biologics (vaccines, bacterins, antisera, diagnostic kits, and other products of biological origin) to help ensure that the veterinary biologics available for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of animal diseases are safe and effective. The APHIS Center for Veterinary Biologics (CVB) carries out this work, focusing on enforcement of the Virus Serum Toxin Act.
Thermo Fisher Scientific animal health products have been at the forefront of recent advances in production animal diagnostics, and are some of the leading modern diagnostic tools to veterinary laboratories around the world.
In keeping with our commitment to deliver the highest-quality next-generation molecular tools, we provide several farm animal diagnostic solutions that have been validated through the stringent USDA licensure process. This includes innovative USDA-licensed detection kits that offer rapid, easy-to-use PCR-based testing solutions that are designed to detect bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), swine influenza virus (SIV), and avian influenza virus (AIV) with exceptional specificity, sensitivity, and reproducibility.
Our vision is to provide comprehensive solutions to help diagnose farm animal health issues more quickly and accurately than ever before. To learn more about our USDA-licensed diagnostic solutions for such diseases as tritrichomonas foetus, bovine viral diarrhea virus and swine influenza virus please download our product flyer.
Thermo Fisher Scientific hosted an event attended by state veterinarians that included a presentation explaining the USDA licensure process, as well as the production and performance criteria that veterinary diagnostic test kits must satisfy to earn a USDA license.
