The Animal Health Diagnostic Center is now using a next-generation molecular testing platform called OpenArray®. This technology combines nano-scale microarray technology with real-time PCR to perform multiple tests on the same sample at once, in separate reactions, with high levels of sensitivity. This will enable us to streamline and expand our syndromic PCR panels while keeping costs down. The immediate benefit to our clients will be that turnaround for additional tests requested may be much faster. We are currently running our canine and equine respiratory panels on this platform and are in the process of validating new multi-species enteric and tick-borne disease panels. Only requested tests will be reported. Please contact us with any questions.
