Brucellosis Testing - The Bacteriology Laboratory implemented the Brucella Buffered Acidified Plate Antigen (BAPA) Test as the default initial testing method for all cattle, cervid, bison and swine brucellosis testing. Non-negative samples will be followed up with the Fluorescent Polarization Assay (FPA) Tube Test. Any inquiries regarding differing Export requirements or other concerns should be directed to the Animal Health Diagnostic Center Regulatory Affairs unit.
