World’s First Poultry Biochip for Pathogen Detection

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) and Veredus Laboratories have demonstrated that VereVetTM, a portable Lab-on-Chip application can detect, differentiate and identify nine major poultry infectious disease agents in one sample using a single disposable biochip.

The launch of this Poultry “laboratory on a chip” application was made possible by the collaborative efforts of the team of scientists from AVA and Veredus, who began working on the project in 2010.

Unlike the conventional method of testing which requires different samples for different tests, the portable Lab-on-Chip application is able to detect multiple infectious disease agents affecting poultry using only one sample. These disease agents include Newcastle Disease virus, Salmonella Pullorum, Salmonella Enteritidis, Campylobacter and Avian Influenza (bird flu) virus
