Since 2007 Allflex started working on a tissue sampling tag as a product to be used in national BVD eradication programs.
In early 2008 we deployed our Tissue Sampling Tag (TST) for BVD diagnosis in Switzerland with 2.7 Million cattle having been tested.
Since Switzerland we have deployed our TST products in Germany, Austria and a Northern Province of Italy.
In February 2011 we launched our TST products in the United Kingdom.
As of January 2012, Allflex TST products have been used in sampling for BVD in over 10 Million Cattle in Europe.
The links below contain useful information, even if you are based outside of Scotland.

Allflex Tissue Sampling Products have played an important role in the Swiss BVD eradication program. In Switzerland all TST products are produced by Allflex. Over a 34 month period Persistently Infected Animals among newborn calves were down by over 95%!
