Infection-free origin provide the best starting point for healthy fish, but it is not possible to analyse all potential infections; this would be too time-consuming and cost-intensive. For many years, PatoGen has worked to determine which pathogens has the highest risk of transfer from parent fish to offspring and whether eradication has a good cost/benefit ratio. PatoGen is therefore a good partner for tailoring systematic programs to monitor broodstock.
The more history and the more systematic the screening of broodstock, the better the results over time. Broodstock screening generates a large amount of data, which can be challenging to process. Patolink is therefore an invaluable tool in this work.
