SureFarm providing Bovine Tuberculosis Diagnostics using the Enferplex test to the animal health industry

‘Groundbreaking’ TB blood test for camelids launched

A new government-approved TB test for camelids – llamas and alpacas – has been launched.

The voluntary system for farmers for testing camelids has been developed over the last two years in conjunction with Defra and the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA).

Developers SureFarm have described the new serological (antibody) blood test, called “SureFarm Camelid Diagnostics”, as “groundbreaking”.

And they have claimed it gives “far greater accuracy” than the current tuberculin skin test used for camelids, which is also used for cattle.
