CanSpotASF Lauched- the first ASF surveillance tool

The Ontario Animal Health Swine Network (OAHN swine network) as part of CSHIN (Canadian Swine Health Intelligence Network) has been asked to help distribute information on CanSpotASF and the first tool being launched in an ASF surveillance pilot project.  This will enable Canadian Animal Health Surveillance Network (CAHSN) labs such as the Animal Health Lab (AHL) in Guelph to conduct “Risk-based early detection testing” on samples submitted to the lab that meet eligibility criteria.  The goal of this surveillance project is geared at early detection of disease if ASF were to be detected in Canada.

We are informing swine producers and industry members of this new pilot project. Attached you will find 2 communication pieces: 

  • CanSpotASF description for producers
  • CanSpotASF one page overview

FYI this pilot is set up very similar to the one that was launched in the USA earlier this year. 

If you have any specific questions about this project please don’t hesitate to reach out to your veterinarian first
