Automated rapid coccidiosis test: QScout Eimeria
Reduce losses to coccidiosis and necrotic enteritis through an early warning system — QScout Eimeria. Advanced Animal Diagnostics is designing this test to automate the process of Eimeria oocyst counts by species in a test anyone can operate in the field real time with no specialized skill or training. AAD’s lab-in-a-box will report test results on-screen and store them in a cloud application so all who need the information can access it real time. Dashboards would track and benchmark key metrics such as OPG over time and by species and location.
