American Foulbrood testing

American Foulbrood is a notifiable, bacterial disease that, if found, is required to be reported to the AFB management agency as well as the hive being destroyed.

dnature, is New Zealand’s lead DNA diagnostic laboratory in the development of DNA tests for the New Zealand apiculture industry.  We developed the industry standard for manuka testing, discovered lotmaria passim in bees in New Zealand and have developed a sensitive DNA diagnostic test for AFB in bees & honey.
