Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS- CoV-2).
This novel coronavirus was first identified in December 2019. In March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic.
The time between exposure to the virus and symptom onset is typically around five days but may range from two to fourteen days.
Common symptoms are similar to seasonal flu. While the majority of cases result in mild symptoms, some progress to viral pneumonia and multi-organ failure.
There is no cure available. Even with a vaccine, testing remains crucial in the fight against COVID-19.
Dogs and cats are no longer treated as pet but one of the family members in today’s society. They are more intimate with human than ever, which makes diagnosis of infectious diseases very important. SBC provides series of high quality RT-PCR test kit to monitor your family member’s health.

More than 50% of the world’s pig population is in Asia, which any kinds of pig disease outbreaks in Asia will affect the entire global pig industry. Besides ASF thats currently on high alert, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) and porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) are both highly monitoring by the nations.
Globalization puts the entire pig industry at risk for ASF and other infectious diseases arising from Asian countries. Disease control strategies for the various pig production systems in Asia are challenging. In order to ensure future food security in the region and to prevent the deleterious consequences of ASF and other major viral disease outbreaks, disease control strategies and production systems must be improved and modernized.
White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) is considered one of the most pathogenic viruses in the shrimp industry and causes large economic losses. It infects not only penaeids, but also other invertebrate aquatic organisms such as crab and crayfish. Persistent infection is common and lifelong infection can occur. Environmental factors such as changes in salinity and water temperature (below ~30°C) may induce disease outbreaks.
Infectious diseases in fish can cause significant losses on fish farms. To improve fish health and increase profitability in the aquaculture industry, SBC has developed a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-based detection tool, cPCR system. It offers on-site pathogen screening which aids regular health monitoring and early disease detection.
