The Center for Tropical Research at the University of California, Los Angeles, is sampling migratory birds for the presence of avian influenza in order to determine their role in the dispersion of this disease. It has long been known that wild birds represent a reservoir of avian influenza viruses worldwide, and identifying the specific role that these long-distance travelers play in disease spread is paramount to the team at UCLA. Avian influenza is caused by type A strains of the influenza virus, and most often is confined to avian populations; however, this virus has the potential to cause pandemic flu in human populations. In the interest of public health, UCLA, in conjunction with a network of banding stations across North America, take cloaca and trachea swabs from numerous migratory bird species during each bird-banding season.
“The customized swab, and more importantly, the team at Puritan who worked with us— starting with our rep—provided us with the perfect sampling tool. And we’re excited to see the results of this research using this swab.”
“To conduct the sampling we required a swab specifically designed for avian specimen collection. Our Puritan rep worked closely with us and produced a sterile, polyester-tipped swab on a customized .0625-inch diameter aluminum wire. It works perfectly in the field and lab, which is important considering some of the conditions where we’re sampling.”
