Scalable and Affordable Biosecurity for Animal Industries
Rapidly detect and monitor a range of infectious diseases at any scale to safeguard the health of your livestock with the Avicena Sentinel.
Animal Health & Food Safety at Risk
Infectious diseases pose a huge risk to livestock and food industries.
Infections in cattle, horses, and pigs can have devastating consequences for producers, industries and food supply chain security.
Rapid & Scalable Pathogen Detection
Combining fast, accurate, scalable and affordable pathogen screening, the Avicena Sentinel ULTRA is an ideal pathogen screening system for animal biosecurity.
The fully automated solution has a unique surge capability, allowing hourly processing of up to 5,000 samples if required.
A Versatile Platform for Robust Biodefence
As a platform based on LAMP, a sensitive technology similar to PCR, Sentinel can readily adapt to existing tests for a wide variety of existing and emerging animal pathogens.
Lumpy Skin Disease
Lumpy Skin Disease Virus (LSDV) is an imminent threat to Australia’s livestock industry.
The recent temporary suspension of some Australian cattle imports due to the virus underscores the potentially severe economic impact of such an outbreak.
Should LSDV require large-scale screening to identify infected cattle earlier to contain the spread, a system validated for immediate use will be critical to counter this risk in time to allow eradication from herds.
African Swine Fever
Having spread from Africa to Europe and Asia, African swine fever (ASF) has killed hundreds of millions of pigs, affecting meat markets globally.
With a mortality rate reaching 100%, this highly contagious virus poses a grave threat to domestic and wild pigs.
While ASF doesn’t endanger human health, it has devastating effects on pigs and the farming industry, and there is no effective and sustainable vaccine solution.
Avian influenza (AI), also known as Bird Flu, is a viral disease that affects birds worldwide. There are many strains of the virus, the most severe causing deadly infections in poultry.
Bird species, including chickens, turkeys, ducks, and pigeons, are vulnerable to AI, with over 140 species reported as carriers.
AI poses an extreme threat to humans given its increased host range and mortality in mammals.
Enforce your First Line of Defence
Rapid detection, reporting and response to disease outbreaks is the first line of defence.
Avicena’s end-to-end system provides flexibility in processing different sample matrices, including blood, skin lesions, and saliva.
The system securely reports results within 30 minutes of loading samples and can precisely link results to animals for reliable traceability.
