Mycobacteria screening services

Surrey Diagnostics offer a rapid PCR service to screen for all species of Mycobacteria that can be present in your Zebrafish and Xenopus colonies.

These species include:

  • M.abscessus
  • M.chelonae
  • M.septicum
  • M.peregrinum
  • M.haemophilium

Mycobacteria can be very difficult and slow to grow, with some species taking months to develop in culture which has made detection difficult and time consuming. The testing method used by Surrey Diagnostics enables us to deliver quick results for our clients.

We also provide screening and detection services for many other species of organisms and work with many of our Clients to create regular health monitoring programmes for their aquatic colonies.
