IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. Production Animal Services Division announcesthe launch of a new IDEXX HerdChek® Swine Salmonella test-an enzymeimmunoassay for the detection of antibody to Salmonella spp in porcine serum,plasma and meat juice. Salmonellosis is one of the most important zoonoticdiseases. Monitoring of the immune status of a herd can be an importanttool in the control of the disease. The major factor in the success of Salmonellaspp as virtually universal pathogens is their ability to adapt to almostany kind of hosts. Salmonella-contaminated food products are the major sourcesof human infection, the company says. The IDEXX Swine Salmonella Antibodytest kit allows rapidscreening of the presence of antibodies to a broadrange of Salmonella spp indicating swine herds' exposure to the bacteria,the company says. It detects the most common serotypes (B, C1, D) isolatedin Europe, Asia and America. The test delivers two protocols: a rapid testingmethod for results in under two hours, and one for overnight results. Itis compatible with IDEXX xChek software for herd management, the companysays.
