GD Animal Health offers a new way to evaluate the health status of pigs: oral fluid testing. Oral fluid is easy to obtain by using special ropes in or above the pens. This means that samples are obtained from the pigs with less work and less stress.

Range of tests:

  • PCV2 PCR
  • Influenza general PCR
  • Influenza subtype specific PCR
  • Influenza A ELISA
  • App ELISA
  • Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae ELISA

Why test oral fluid?

Oral fluid testing is a very practical and accessible method in pig-disease diagnostics. Lab results give a reliable picture of certain agents and antibodies that can occur in the majority of pigs in a pen. The use of oral fluid as sample material, instead of blood, for instance, has many benefits:

  • Easy to obtain: the method requires very little work, and oral fluid can be obtained quickly and easily.
  • Sample more animals at no extra cost: using just one rope the majority of pigs in the same pen can be sampled.
  • Animal-friendly: avoids intrusive and stressful methods, such as blood sampling.
