PCR screen: Avian Pathogen
Description: The Avian Pathogen Screen includes analysis for three important avian pathogens communicable to humans: Cryptococcus neoformans, Histoplasma capsulatum, and Chlamydophila psittaci. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is employed to detect the DNA of the three pathogens. H. capsulatum analysis is qualitative and results will be reported as Detected or Not Detected. C. neoformans and C. psittaci results are quantitative and a standard curve is utilized to determine quantities present.
Sample types: Bulk sample, Dust sample, Swab sample, Water sample, Wipe sample, Polycarbonate Air Filter Cassette
Available turnaround: Standard, Next-day rush
