These research applications include but not limited to, studying the pharmacokinetics of immune stimulating or inhibiting drug and drug candidates; supporting new vaccine development and trials; investigating immune function-related human diseases and drug development, etc. Please refer to the PRODUCTS page and CONTACT US for more details.
Nano Discovery Inc. is a biotechnology company based in Orlando, Florida, United States. We develop, manufacture and sell a rapid blood test product, D2Dx™ immunity test, to detect and monitor farm and companion animals' immune status and health. We also supply products for research and studies related to human diseases. D2Dx™ technology is protected by multiple granted patents and pending patent applications.
D2Dx™ immunity test is a rapid blood test for animal immune health testing. It is a one-of-its-kind test that allows quick and accurate assessment of an animal's immune status on the farm, on the animal side. Producers, farmers and veterinarians can conduct the test in local facilities without shipping samples to laboratories and waiting days to receive the results. Our product is built upon and supported by years of research. Read our NEWS and BLOG to learn more today!
CALVES (DAIRY, BEEF, CROSS)
D2Dx™ immunity test can be used to monitor the immune status and development of dairy, beef, and dairy-beef cross calves at any growth stage, from birth to weaning, to feedlot and finishing. The test provides the information you need to make informed treatment and nutrition management decisions.
- Identify newborn dairy calves with failure of passive immune transfer (FPIT)
- Identify calves with compromised immune health due to stress (transportation, weaning, heat), and calves with active infections.
- Select and adjust feed, feed additives/supplements and nutrition products that will keep animals in best immune health and reach the best production performance
Infectious diseases (mastitis, metritis) are the leading cause to financial loss in dairy farms. Dairy cows are more prone to diseases (mastitis, metritis) during the peri-parturient period because their immunity is compromised during this period. D2Dx™ immunity test provides a convenient tool to evaluate the cows' immune health on the farm. The test results can help farmers and producers select the best feed/nutrition products and treatments to maximize the immune protection in the cows. Cows with better immune health post calving are more productive and less prone to diseases. Some studies also show that cows with higher immunity test scores during breeding season tend to have higher conception rate from cows with lower immunity scores.
The intensive production system in poultry farms makes infectious diseases particularly challenging to deal with. Due to close contacts, birds are constantly exposed to a wide range of high risk and contagious pathogens. There is also an increasing pressure to reduce the use of antibiotics in livestock industry. To overcome these challenges, the most ideal solution is to boost the animals' own immune health. There are many products (feed, feed additives, supplements, and other non-antibiotic products) that are designed and developed to help improve the birds' immune health. D2Dx™ immunity test provides a convenient tool for producers and nutritionists to monitor the flock's immune health and to select the best performing products for the flock.
SHEEP AND GOATS
D2Dx™ immunity test can be used to monitor the immune status and health in ewes, lambs, and goats. Studies have found that ewes with higher D2Dx™ immunity test scores tend to have less risk of parasitic infection (lower FEC) and lower somatic cell count (LogSCC) in milk compared to ewes with lower immunity scores. D2Dx™ immunity test may also be used to identify mother ewes with better immune health for selective breeding. Research has found a positive correlation between mother ewes' immunity scores during the peri-parturient period and the general health of newborn lambs. Lambs born from mother ewes with higher immunity scores tend to have higher immunity scores and higher average daily gains in the first 60 days following birth.
