Mycoplasmosis

 
 

Poultry flocks are susceptible to respiratory infections from a variety of agents, including Mycoplasma spp. The usual types of infection from Mycoplasma spp. are chronic respiratory disease, airsacculitis, sinusitis and synovitis. In many cases, however, the infection may be identified only through serological and culture methods. Monitoring a flock for exposure to Mycoplasma is facilitated by the measurement of antibody to Mycoplasma in serum.

IDEXX MG Ab Test

Availability/Distribution: Worldwide

 

Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) is associated with chronic respiratory disease in chickens and infectious sinusitis in turkeys. The symptoms generally seen are coryza, coughing, nasal exudate and respiratory rales. Economic losses due to M. gallisepticum infection include reduced egg production, poor eggshell quality, lowered hatchability of chicks and downgraded meat quality.

(5 plates/solid)

  • Serum samples
  • Indirect format
  • Chicken and turkey samples
 

IDEXX MG/MS Ab Test

Availability/Distribution: Worldwide

 

Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) is associated with chronic respiratory disease in chickens and infectious sinusitis in turkeys. The symptoms generally seen are coryza, coughing, nasal exudate and respiratory rales. Economic losses due to M. gallisepticum infection include reduced egg production, poor eggshell quality, lowered hatchability of chicks and downgraded meat quality. 

Mycoplasma synoviae (MS) is a known pathogen associated with the development of synovitis and chronic respiratory disease in chickens and turkeys. Clinical symptoms include joint swelling, coryza and respiratory rales. Economic losses due to M. synoviae infection include reduced egg production, lowered hatchability of chicks and downgraded meat quality.

IDEXX MM Ab Test

Availability/Distribution: Worldwide

 

Mycoplasma meleagridis (MM) is the cause of egg-transmitted disease of turkeys in which the primary lesion is an airsacculitis in the progeny. Other manifestations include decreased hatchability, skeletal abnormalities and poor growth performance. The organism is a specific pathogen of turkeys. MM is distributed worldwide, and the incidence of MM-associated airsacculitis is very high (20–65%) in naturally infected cull poults.
