SAWCorp has introduced the first practical live animal blood test for CWD. SAWCorp’s prion test is able to identify CWD-infected deer and elk before they start showing symptoms, allowing ranchers, producers and Federal and State agencies to more quickly remove affected animals from the herd. For live and post-mortem tests, samples can be collected in the field by producers, hunters, ranchers, vets and government offices using a standard veterinary lab kits or a SAWCorp field collection kit which can be purchased from SAWCorp.
SAWCorp’s CWD test results cannot yet be used to satisfy USDA or state reporting requirements for herd owners. However the test can be used by herd owners for private screening of their herds. If you are interested in screening your herd, please contact us at email@example.com
