Pathogen detection and identification service

Through genetic assays and the analysis of biochemical parameters, we address a significant challenge in marine pathogen identification: the need for rapid diagnostic methods to enable timely monitoring and control of diseases. Leveraging molecular biology tools, particularly real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), we have established a service that swiftly and precisely identifies primary fish pathogens. This enhances detection sensitivity, and, in certain instances, we augment this approach by examining biochemical parameters, ensuring the utmost dependable and efficient diagnosis.
