Eradication of Bovine Viral Diarrhea
BVD is one of the most widespread and economically important cattle diseases, causing annual losses of >10M CHF in Switzerland. Therefore, the Swiss government set-up an eradication program which included the testing of the complete cattle livestock (first phase) and subsequently monitored all newborn calves during several years (second phase). Microsynth was successful to become one of a few laboratories which were accredited by the Swiss government to qualify for BVD testing. Further, Microsynth signed exclusive contracts with 5 Swiss cantons.
