For human and non-human primates research: while our products are primarily used for livestock animal immune health testing, we have products that can be used for human and non-human primates related research applications. 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. Farmers and veterinarians can conduct the test in their 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 and extensive data evidence. We are proud to provide a satisfaction guarantee to our clients and customers.

D2Dx™ immunity test has been used to monitor and determine the immune health and status in multiple animal species (cattle, sheep, goats, fish, poultry, swine) at different growth and reproduction stages. The test may be used for both farm management and research purposes. Please visit the NEWS and BLOG section to read the scientific publications, conference presentations, and farm trial data on the D2Dx™ immunity test.
Calves (dairy, beef, dairy-beef cross, and feedlot calves)
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. The test results can help make treatment, nutrition management, and breeding management decisions.
- Identify newborn dairy calves with failure of passive immune transfer (FPIT);
- Determine if calves at 8-10 weeks of age have developed sufficient immunity and are ready for weaning. Use the information to manage the weaning program. Select heifer calves with the best immunity as replacement heifers
- Identify calves with compromised immune health due to stress (transportation, weaning, heat), and calves with active infections.
Dairy cows and heifers
Dairy cows experience immunity change during the peri-parturient period, and these changes make the cows more vulnerable to infectious diseases. D2Dx™ immunity test can be used to monitor the cows' immune health on the farm and help farmers select the best nutrition products and other treatments to achieve the best immune protection for the cows.
Getting a dairy cow pregnant on time remains a significant challenge in the dairy industry. Animals with better immune health tend to have higher fertility. Recent studies found that the D2Dx™ immunity test can help identify cows with higher pregnancy probability from cows with lower fertility. The difference between the high fertility group vs. the low fertility group can be as large as 40% (60-75% in the high fertility vs. 30% in the low fertility group). The test may also help farmers select the best replacement heifers at the weaning age to reduce heifer-rearing costs and improve profitability.
Sheep, goats, lamb
D2Dx™ immunity test has been used to monitor the immune status and health in ewes, lambs, and goat kids. 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. Researchers 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.
Feed and nutritional supplements are extremely important for animal health. Animals require different types and levels of nutrition supply at the different growth stages. The nutrition needs of farm animals also vary according to seasons and their geological locations. Many feed, nutrition, and supplement products in the market are formulated to improve the immune health of animals.
D2Dx™ immunity test provides a simple tool for farm owners, managers, and veterinarians to conveniently monitor the entire herd's immune health in a farm setting. Feed and nutrition plans may be adjusted to achieve the best results based on the results. Use the D2Dx™ immunity test to make informed and timely management decisions.
