Rapid Disease Diagnostic Centre For Small Ruminants


Rapid Disease Diagnostic Centre For Small Ruminants

(Developed Under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana)

Rapid Disease Diagnostic Centre For Small Ruminants has been established in 2013 under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana. The laboratory is dedicated for development of protocols  for rapid disease diagnosis of small ruminants with main objective to provide the service to Farmers, Veterinarians, Paraveterinarians and ultimately the small ruminants. RDDCSR may act as a Referral Centre for Diagnosis of Diseases in  Small Ruminants.

aRapid Disease Diagnostic Centre For Small Ruminants is well equipped with modern equipments such as Real Time PCR Unit, Fluorescent microscopy with high end photography unit and Mass spectrometry based MALDI TOF Biotyper-First of its kind in the country  in veterinary field. The MALDI TOF Biotyper is based on the principle of Proteomics and is having great potential in developing the rapid diagnostic protocols for diseases of veterinary  and zoonotic importance through proteomics based research. With MALDI TOF MS unit it is possible to identify the bacterial colony based on proteomics principle within 2-5 minutes to the species level with high accuracy.
