The #Biosecurity Authority of Fiji (#BAF) has recently developed molecular diagnostics, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) for detecting Leptospira serovars in animals.

BAF’s Veterinary Team has been collecting and testing blood samples from pet dogs and livestock mammals for leptospirosis with PCR test to identify possible carrier animals.

The Team jointly works with the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (#MOHMS) team to undertake trace back information of human positive cases and also carry out surveillance in animal populations from identified risk areas in order to create solid prevention plan for #leptospirosis in Fiji.
