Aviagen shared modern veterinary laboratory knowledge and cutting-edge techniques with its Ross grandparent distributor, Wadi Group, recently as part of a three-day training event at its veterinary laboratory in Scotland. The training forms part of a series run for its grandparent regional customers, to ensure all distributor laboratories are performing to the highest standards set by Aviagen.

Central Laboratory Wadi Holdings Technical Director Dr. Hussein Aly Hussein Ahmed and Head of Lab Sectors Dr. Naglaa El Hinawy attended the training, where time was spent reviewing Salmonella isolation and confirmation methods, lab quality presentations and looking at serotyping, sample preparation and sensitivity testing.

Ahmed said: “This visit provided us with an excellent opportunity to view and work in an accredited lab and receive three days of essential lab training which will help us set up our own hi-tech laboratory. Our thanks must go to all of the staff at the Aviagen lab that was involved in making it such a worthwhile trip for us.”


Neil Clark, regional technical manager at Aviagen said: “We were thrilled to welcome the Wadi team from Egypt to our laboratory. The visit will allow Wadi to implement and synchronize laboratory practices with Aviagen standards, improve flock monitoring and further ensure freedom of final product for vertically transmitted diseases.”
