Bioguard Salmonella Ag rapid diagnostic test kit

Bioguard Salmonella Ag Test is a sandwich lateral flowimmunochromatographic assay for rapid and qualitative detection of Salmonella in avian and reptiles faeces.


Salmonella can infect all birds, especially chickens, turkeys, and pheasants. It mainly infects chicks under three weeks old or chick embryos.


Salmonella can cause indigestion, sticky green foam droppings with a foul odour, poor growth, weight loss, joint inflammation and swelling, drooping wings or inability to stand, and lameness. All symptoms may result in increased mortality of chicks. Adult birds usually show no symptoms, but it may cause a decrease in egg production.


Reptiles can often carry Salmonella. People can become unwell from Salmonella bacteria through contact with reptiles or their environments, such as water from tanks or aquariums.
