This rapid test detects Salmonella bacteria in the faeces of either single birds or a pooled sample from the loft. Using one test kit, a pooled faecal sample from the loft detects the Salmonella status of the loft in general. Pigeons can also be tested individually to detect general health and carrier status of individual pigeons. Results are avaialble within 10 minutes. Easy-to-follow instructions allow the fancier to do the test himself. Treatment, if needed, can be started immediately. No time is wasted waiting for laboratory results.
Any new birds can be tested before being introduced into the breeding program.
