BioHub Birmingham® tenant to develop rapid diagnostic test for mastitis in dairy cows

 

Abingdon Health, a tenant at the University of Birmingham’s bio-incubator, is developing a rapid diagnostic test for bovine mastitis, a common and serious health problem in dairy cows, which has an estimated £14-23 billion impact on the global dairy industry1.
