New Test Can Help Limit Spread of PartuberculosisJuly 6th, 2012
There’s nothing like a plate of cookies hot from the oven washed down with a glass of milk. Preferably, you’ll have that milk without any Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis. Infected cattle can remain symptom free for quite a while, so it’s important to identify infected organisms before they can pass the infection on to others in the herd. A potential screening method involves the use of an immunolabelled magnetic bead assay. To create a uniform bacterial suspension, the researchers broke up clumps by treatment in an ultrasonic cleaner. The new test was found to be accurate enough to detect small numbers of the bacteria.
