Sample Collection For Disease Testing
 

 

AVIAN BIOTECH OFFERS FREE KITS FOR SAMPLE COLLECTION AND TRANSPORTATION. VIALS, CARDS OR SWABS MAY BE USED FOR TESTING. COMBINATION BLOOD AND SWAB SAMPLES ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ALL DISEASE TESTING (EXCEPT SALMONELLA). THERE IS NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR SUBMITTING BOTH A BLOOD SAMPLE AND A SWAB SAMPLE FROM THE SAMPLE BIRD.


 

Blood Vials:
Blood vials allow you to collect blood specimens for identifying viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic disease causing organisms found in the blood stream. Additionally, blood vials can be used for fingerprinting your birds for relatedness and identification, as well as DNA sexing.

 

Vent Swabs:
vent swabbing is an excellent method for collecting sample specimens from the cloacal area. Vent swabs are recommended in conjunction with blood samples for all avian disease testing.

 

Environmental Swabs:
Collecting environmental samples allow you to evaluate possible bacterial or viral problems in aviaries, nest boxes, nurseries, brooders, incubators, air-filters, food, cages, countertops, veterinarian offices and other areas.
