Febe, an Albino Indian-Ringneck
suffering from Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD). She came
to us in 1995 and helped us develop our first assay to identify
birds infected with PBFD virus.
Visit our disease information section
and learn more about PBFD and other avian diseases that could affect
your pet bird or aviary.
Early detection and quarantine of infectious diseases
helps prevent the devastating effects that a bacterial, fungal,
parasitic or viral outbreak can cause. At risk are most aviaries,
nurseries, pet-shops, bird shows, quarantine stations, brokers,
zoos, medical facilities and bird hospitals. In addition, people
working at or visiting these places can become infected and spread
the disease to other locations.

transforming how we detect different disease
There are several steps that can be taken to help minimize the chances
of an infectious disease outbreak.
These steps include good hygiene, healthy diet, prevent over crowding,
accurate disease diagnoses, quarantining new birds, and so on. We
understand that accurate disease testing is not only critically
important to the health of your bird, but also to the success of
any breeding program, veterinarian hospital, zoo and pet shop. At
Avian Biotech, we make it our business to ease the challenge of
disease management and control. Using the most technologically advanced
detection methods currently available, we feel that we can provide
our customers around the world with new cutting edge technologies
not found elsewhere.
