A new pest detection system for prawn farmers

Genics is a prawn pathogen technology. It diagnoses 13 commercially relevant pathogens of prawns (plus known genetic variants) in one assessment, drastically reducing testing costs, turnaround times and increasing the use of pathogen diagnostics in everyday management decisions in prawn farming. The technology is unique in its ability to detect multiple pathogens simultaneously in a highly specific, sensitive and semi-quantitative manner that is equivalent to and in many cases superior to current single pathogen detection systems used globally. Genics has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/ON-Accelerate4-Teams/Genics

  1. What an excellent and efficient idea! This should cut down wasteful breeding of ultimately unhealthy prawns and minimise use of resources. And possibly lower prices.
