For the correct diagnosis it is essential the sample selection according to the pathological process as well as the sampling methodology and its delivery to our laboratory. You can see this action protocols in which we describe how to take samples, the diagnosis service that we provide and the autogenous vaccine that we advised in case of these pathogen's confirmation:-->
Here you can see how to take samples correctly:
Most of the problems that afects the farms are multifactorials. To give you the most complete diagnosis, we have create different diagnosis panels that allows us to study the presence and the incidence of all the pathogens. We combine three diagnosis techniques in those panels: Microbiology, Real Time PCR and Serology. We can also analyze individual determinations.
Serotyping the isolated strains from clinical cases allows us to know which serotypes are causing outbreaks in a population. In addition, it is essential to know the serotype when we consider the development of autogenous vaccines.
- Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (serotypes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 1/9/11, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16)
- Streptococcus suis (serotypes 1-14, 2-1/2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9)
- Haemophilus parasuis (serotypes 1/2/11, 2, 3, 4, 5/12, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14)
- Influenza A (detection of H1-avian, human y pandemic-, H3, N1, N2)
- Pasteurella multocida (capsules A, B, D, E, F)
- Escherichia coli (virulence factors: gen eae, F4, F5, F6, F18, F41, AIDA, EAST, STa, STb, STx2e, LT, GAD)
- Clostridium perfringens (toxines: Alfa, Beta, Épsilon, Iota, Enterotoxina, Beta-2)
It consists of the determination of the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration of a series of antibiotics. Each of them will present a different MIC, which allows us to know the concentration of antibiotic that we should at least reach to inhibit the growth of the bacteria.
