Infectious Diseases


The Serology/Immunology Section of the Animal Health Diagnostic Center develops and uses fully validated serological assays to detect antibodies or antigens as indicators for infectious diseases in production animals, companion animals, and zoo species. Assays are validated according to criteria published in the OIE International Standards Manual for serological assays. Quality control, with accurate and reproducible results, is our primary goal. Test results are interpreted to inform veterinarians beyond the usual serological values that are reported.
