A major problem in commercial aquaculture is viral disease outbreaks that cause serious losses to the industry. The virus spreads via vertical or horizontal transmission through infected carriers. There is no known effective treatment for shrimp or fish virus. PCR is a sensitive and specific molecular tool for early detection of potential carriers.
LIR Biotech operates a conventional PCR laboratory and we offer test for virus in shrimp (WSSV, TSV, YHV/GAV, IMNV, HPV, MBV, NHP-B) and fish (KHV, Iridovirus and VNN). Results are generated with full gel images with a turn around time of 24-48 hours. All information is treated with confidentiality. We provide walk in or contract screening. We will provide advise on how to prepare and ship the specimens. Contact us for further information.
