    Salient Achievements:


  • To detect the presence of urea in adulterated/ synthetic milk, a strip test has been developed. The test is sensitive enough to detect urea at a concentration of 0.1% in milk in only one minute.

  • Immunodiagnostic tests like ELISA, rider immunoassay (RIA), coagglutination (COAT), counter current Immunoelectrophoresis (CIE), fluorescent antibody test (FAT) have been standardized and carried out for the diagnosis of Infectious diseases, viz. infectious bursal disease, canine parvovirus infection, new castle, rota virus infection and salmonellosis.

  • A live attenuated cell culture vaccine against sheep pox was developed using Karnal strain of sheep pox virus.

  • A Marek’s disease virus strain isolated locally from an apparently healthy bird was attenuated in chicken embryo fibroblast cell culture. The virus at its 20th passage level was used as a vaccine and the protection afforded was comparable to other available MD vaccines.

  • Salmonella Toxoid afford 100% protection in mice.

  • Congo red binding test for detection of pathogenecity of Escherichia coli strains in poultry developed.

  • Studies based on serotypes of E.coli and antibiotic sensitivity pattern in colibacillosis in poultry were determined.

  • Enterotoxin and four novel cytotoxins of Salmonella were purified and characterized.
