New diagnostic methods design

Development of new dignostic molecular methods based in the Methagenomics and PCR metodologies multiple and quantitative for several animal infectius deseases, in order to be able to carry out molecular epidemiology studies and develop techniques to differentiate vaccinated animals from infected.

Incorporation of a new line of thermal imaging diagnosis to detect feverish conditions at an early stage and without the need for any manipulation of the animal. Evaluation of the system in different domestic and wild animals in both terrestrial and aquatic
