Vet Health

Veterinary diagnostics play an important role in improving the health of companion animals, livestock and wildlife. Specifically in the agriculture sector, animal health laboratories aim to improve the quality of terrestrial and aquatic animal products, and to assure international market access through the development and application of animal health surveillance. In parallel, there has been a rise in people having companion animals which has driven innovations in the animal diagnostics market, with new POC assays aimed at testing infectious diseases, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. The overall increase in interaction with animals has also increased the prevalence of zoonotic diseases worldwide, demonstrated by newly emerging zoonotic diseases such as Nipah Virus.
