In this laboratory, abortions occurring in farm animals are examined bacteriologically and serologically, as well as bacterial factors that cause important genital infections such as venereal Campylobacteriosis and Contagious Equine Metritis (CEM). Bacterial microorganisims are examined conventional and serologically in cattle, sheep, goats and equids. This laboratory's duties;

• Bacteriological examination of waste materials in terms of Brucellosis, Campylobacteriosis and Salmonellosis,

• Bacteriological examination of horse genital swabs for Taylorella equigenitalis, Klebsiella pneumonia and Pseudomonas aeruginosa,

• Microbiological examination of bull prepuce washes and cow vaginal washes for Bovine Venereal Campylobacteriosis,

• Antibodies against Brucellosis in cattle, sheep, goat and human blood serum; Serological examination with Rose Bengal Plate, Serum Tube Agglutination and Complement Fixation tests,

• Serological detection of antibodies against Salmonellosis in horse, cattle, sheep and goat blood serum by Tube Agglutination Test,

• Detection of genetic materials of Chlamydia abortus and Coxiella burnet bacteria in tissues, organs and genital swabs of Cattle, Sheep and Goats by Real-Time PCR method.

In order to ensure quality control of the analyses, laboratory participates in proficiency tests at the standards determined by the Turkish Accreditation Agency. You can access the current analysis list that we are accredited from this link;

Breeding Diseases Laboratory is a national reference for Bovine Venereal Campylobacteriosis and Contagious Equine Metritis (CEM) diseases.
