Alberta selects Bio-Rad rapid BSE test
Bio-Rad Laboratories reports that the province of Alberta in Canada has chosen its automated TeSeE test for use in its enhanced BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) surveillance programme

The largest beef producing and finishing province in Canada, Alberta's federally regulated beef industry processed 2.1million head of cattle, or 68 percent of the Canadian total, in 2003. 'We look forward to supporting Alberta in its BSE surveillance programme', said Brad Crutchfield, Bio-Rad's vice president of life science. 'With our experience working with more than 500 labs in 25 countries faced with the discovery of BSE, we stand ready to assist Alberta's government in the development of a world class animal disease and food safety surveillance system'.

Bio-Rad's TeSeE test kit runs on an automated robotics platform that speeds sample preparation, enabling laboratories to provide faster results.

The testing platform can process up to 1000 samples in an eight-hour time period, provides the highest level of sensitivity in a BSE screening method and will produce results in just four hours.

Bio-Rad says its BSE test is the most widely used in the world.
