Rowland collaborates with Lawrence Livermore on technology to help detect diseases in commercial swine industry

By Division of Communications and Marketing

Agricultural officials who seek to detect diseases affecting the commercial swine industry may gain a new ally — a biological detection system developed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers.

A study by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Kansas State University scientists — including Raymond "Bob" Rowland, professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology —  found that the Lawrence Livermore Microbial Detection Array could help identify diseases in the commercial swine industry.

The research paper will be carried in the May edition of the Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation, which is published by the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians.
