Air Sampler and qPCR Workflow Detects Viruses in Herds

Veterinary diagnostics have entered a new age. With one simple air sample, you can get a clear picture of the developing diseases in a herd of animals. The company behind the revolutionizing technology, AeroCollect®, has announced a global development, sales, and distribution agreement with Indical Bioscience in a joint effort to improve animal health globally.

The AeroCollect® technology has shown enormous potential in recent years – especially within poultry and swine production – and to successfully expand internationally, AeroCollect A/S and Indical Bioscience are now joining forces.

How AeroCollect works:
AeroCollect® works by pulling a flow of air through a small sample chamber. When collecting samples, high voltage is applied to the test chamber. This creates an electric field across the sample chamber that captures and concentrates bacteria, viruses, and other microscopic particles in the sample chamber. The sample chamber is then sent to the laboratory where the content is analyzed for pathogens using a qPCR analysis. The results are ready within one to two hours.

AeroCollect® is a CE-marked Danish technology developed by FORCE Technology. The technology is currently used in the poultry, swine, and mink industries. In addition, the equipment has been shown to be useful in cattle herds and the human pharmaceutical industry, but the technology is not yet commercially available in these fields. AeroCollect® has over 60 customers in 14 countries.
