More info

The Vita American foulbrood (AFB) Diagnostic Test Kit enables beekeepers and bee inspectors to test for AFB in honeybee larvae and to obtain the results immediately and easily in the apiary.

Key Facts

  • Diagnostic kit works like a home pregnancy test
  • Generates immediate results
  • Reacts specifically to antibodies associated with the pathogen Paenibacillus larvae subsp. larvae which causes AFB in honeybees


Kit Contents

The AFB test kit contains the following:

 

Whole or part samples can be used, but it is recommended that a whole infected larva be used to obtain the best results.

The kit performs as well as standard AFB laboratory tests. It has been validated by the National Bee Unit of the Food and Environment Research Agency (FERA), York and at other institutes internationally. It has been developed for Vita by the Foresight Diagnostics section at FERA in York, UK.

One American Foulbrood diagnostic testing kit is used per sample test. For each hive that needs to be tested you will need to use one diagnostic kit.
