Animal Import/Export Testing: Routine ELISA Testing with the Freedom EVOlyzer®
13 April 2015

The Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau (CIQ) for Tianjin, China, is responsible for monitoring import and export of commodities, foodstuffs, plants and animals throughout the municipal area of the city of Tianjin. In 2008, the ADDL decided to automate ELISA processing on a Tecan Freedom EVOlyzer due to their increasing daily test demands. This case study demonstrates how the instrument is used for screening animals entering or leaving China via the municipality’s ports for the presence of infectious diseases.
