Early alerts at the onset of disease in pig herds

Trials were planned for 2020 to see if the Roboscientific Volatile Organic Sensor and Analysis technology can detect a range of targeted diseases in pigs.  Diseases planned for examination were: African Swine Fever (ASF), Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea (PED).

We have now started a first feasibility trial to detect PRRS in pigs in China as part of a trial organised by the Government funded catalyst organisation, Agri-Epi Centre.

It is hoped that we will be able to commence work detecting other diseases in pigs in 2022.
