Post-partum uterine infections or inflammation (endometritis) are the leading causes of reproductive inefficiency in dairy cattle. Diagnosis of endometritis in cattle has been hampered by a lack of simple, effective diagnostic techniques and a poor definition of the disease. This technology is based on the detection of particular protein markers that can sensitively detect uterine infection and inflammation and in addition, indicate the severity of the infection or inflammation.
AgResearch is looking for a development partner for this technology.
