Randy Shirbroun talks pathology and prevention of diseasesJun 24, 2016
WORTHINGTON, Minn. – Veterinarian Randy Shirbroun of Newport Laboratories Inc. addressed more than 200 bison producers regarding the pathology and prevention of diseases caused by Mycoplasma bovis. The producers had gathered for the 2016 National Bison Association Summer Conference held in June at Elk River, Minnesota. Shirbroun specializes in ruminant health issues including those seen in the American bison, which became the official U.S. national mammal in May.
Newport Laboratories releases new Mycoplasma bovis TestNov 09, 2015
Newport Laboratories, Inc. has developed a new multilocus sequence typing (MLST) technique for Mycoplasma bovis, a significant cause of disease in cattle. The new technology represents a major advancement over the previous diagnostic process and will provide increased resolution and a better assessment of genetic variation that may be associated with antigenic, or strain differences. This technological advancement utilizing molecular biology is yet another development to come from Newport Laboratories, Inc., a leader in cutting edge diagnostic technology and the manufacturer of autogenous, or custom-made vaccines. The new MLST technique evaluates 10 variable genes associated with specific Mycoplasma bovis virulence factors, including several of the variable surface proteins (VSPs).
