Viral Testing

One of the more devastating issues affecting captive reptiles across the world, are viral related illnesses.   Fast an accurate diagnosis for the types of viruses found in Australia can be made through the use of Polymerase Chain Reaction testing  (PCR).  This form of testing involves reproducing (amplifying) sections of DNA or RNA that are specific to the virus suspected.  These tests are non-invasive and very accurate.

Common tests performed are:

  • Sunshinevirus

  • Bornavirus

  • Corona virus

  • Adenovirus

  • Other tests are available
