What is poultry diagnostics and why is it important?

Poultry diagnostics refers to the set of procedures and techniques used to identify, monitor, and manage diseases and health-related issues in poultry populations, including chickens, turkeys, ducks, and other avian species raised for various purposes. These diagnostic methods encompass a wide range of tools, including laboratory tests, imaging, and clinical assessments, to detect and diagnose poultry diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, or other factors. Poultry diagnostics play a crucial role in maintaining flock health, ensuring food safety, preventing disease outbreaks, and supporting the poultry industry's sustainability by enabling timely interventions and informed decision-making for disease control and management.
