for Processing Fluids
Processing fluid is the serosanguineous fluid or tissue exudate derived from piglet castration and tail docking practices in breed-to-wean swine herds.
Processing fluids constitute a practical, fast yet effective and useful sampling method to detect swine pathogens like porcine reproductive and respiratory virus (PRRSV) that can circulate in the farm at a low prevalence, increasing the chances of a re-break. Innoceleris can help producers to adapt and/or develop pathogen specific immunoassays for antibody-based monitoring in farms undergoing pathogen elimination.
