Infectious Salmon Anaemia Diagnostic Service
In response to the recent global outbreaks of infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) in farmed salmon,
x-OvO Limited is pleased to offer a centralised diagnostic PCR and HE gene sequencing service to allow clients to identify and track the spread of ISAV.
The specific provision of elongated sequences (1200 nucleotides) from the variable region of the HE gene assists veterinarians, farmers and fish production companies in the identification of the potential source of their ISAV infection via statistical comparison of isolates from infected farms to possible infectious sources (e.g. the trout reservoir or genetic source stock).
The analysis is carried out at an International reference institute on both frozen tissue samples or those submitted in viral transport media.
Further details are available from your local distributor or directly from x-OvO Limited.
