Current Methods & Issues

Sona’s Bovine Tuberculosis Solution

Time to results

No cost-effective early detection methods currently available

  • A diagnosis through a skin test, turnaround of 48-72 hours
  • Post-mortem examination and tissue culture, can take up to 12 weeks

Early detection at low cost without the need for test-and-slaughter

  • Blood sample taken for rapid lateral flow test
  • Associated app for tracking and reporting in minutes

Cost of Intervention

Once bTB is confirmed, all exposed animals in a herd are destroyed

Estimated costs of bovine TB control in UK to top £1 billion over the next decade
