Diagnostics are essential tools to ensure the health of domestic and wild animals for both endemic and emerging diseases. They allow animal health professionals to understand and manage the general health status of domestic animals, and they are essential for animal health authorities during the emergence of disease and in the eradication or control of notifiable animal diseases. They are also important tools to support public health initiatives in the case of zoonotic disease control and can be used in the fight against antimicrobial resistance. Diagnostic assays can play an important role in the testing of new and authorised biologics.
