Aside from Salmonella there are many other bacteria that can infect poultry. The Crowshall laboratory is concerned with four other areas of bacteriology.

  • Determinant Bacteriology- culturing and identifying bacteria involved in disease cases
  • Antibiotic sensitivity testing- to determine which range of antibiotics may be appropriate for treating a given infection
  • Total viable count testing (TVC) - to determine efficacy of cleansing and disinfection programmes or bacterial status of drinking water
  • Campylobacter testing
