Equine veterinarians in New Jersey rely on the laboratory for required Coggins tests for equine infectious anemia (EIA) as well as tests for Eastern equine encephalitis, equine influenza, Lyme disease, Potomac horse fever, herpes virus, and equine viral arteritis.
New Jersey's bovine practitioners depend on the laboratory for tests such as bovine viral diarrhea, parainfluenza-3, infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, brucellosis, and Johne's, among others.
In addition, the laboratory prepares specimens and coordinates testing for some foreign animal diseases and zoonotic diseases.
This year, the diagnostic laboratory successfully completed the most recent round of certification testing administered by the National Veterinary Services Laboratories for EIA and Johne's as required for all government labs doing regulatory tests including EIA, bluetongue and pseudorabies. Through these and other services, the laboratory supports New Jersey's livestock industry, providing private veterinarians with fast, accurate, convenient and economical animal health testing services. NJDA's animal health laboratory conducts a wide variety of tests to support domestic livestock disease control programs, including veterinary bacteriology, virology, serology, pathology and histology.
