What is farm biosecurity and why it’s important

Biosecurity is the combination of safeguards that minimise risk of pathogen(s) entering and/or being spread within a farming system.

  • These safeguards are made up of integrated Standard Operating Procedures, regular Compliance Audits, Active Pathogen Surveillance, Emergency Response Plans and importantly, Staff Training and an appreciation by all members of a Team what biosecurity means and how to practice good hygiene and biosecurity practices
  • Biosecurity also extends to workflow design, systems design, farm layout, contractor compliance and essentially covers all possible input scenarios and movement scenarios in a given premise.

Good Biosecurity Practices are essential in all animal production systems to mitigate risk of pathogen incursion and secure farming certainly.

Benchmark Audits

Biosecurity Benchmark Audits and Customised Response Plans


Environmental DNA (eDNA) analysis, our newest biosecurity safeguard


Test your animal feed (shrimp, pigs and others) for pathogens


Regular testing of your farm inputs to reduce risk of a biosecurity breach


Use Shrimp and Pork MultiPath™ for animal biosecurity surveillance

Begin with Confidential Biosecurity Benchmark Audits and establish your practical Response Plan

Confidential Biosecurity Benchmark Audits for your business

As a starting point we work with clients to establish your biosecurity benchmark in three simple steps.

  1. We perform a confidential audit of your current biosecurity protocols
  2. We provide an evidence based custom Confidential Biosecurity Benchmark Audit Report detailing any gaps in your farm biosecurity defence
  3. We provide the solutions and consulting to reduce risk of biosecurity breaches.

Delivering your Biosecurity Response Plan

As part of our biosecurity consultancy, we work with farmers to create a Biosecurity Framework and Response Plan

  1. The plan intersects with your Confidential Biosecurity Benchmark Audit Report
  2. It outlines what systems and protocols are needed to avoid a breach, but also what additional emergency measures are recommended in the unlikely scenario a biosecurity breach occurs
  3. Your Biosecurity Framework and Response Plan is a dynamic framework that will be added to as new technology and improved systems are developed.

What’s new in biosecurity solutions

Continuous innovation heralds new ways to improve your biosecurity.

eDNA – Test your water

Based on the principles of Environmental DNA (eDNA) analysis, our new biosecurity safeguard, Genics Water MultiPath, provides an extra layer of biosecurity when used in conjunction with Shrimp or Pork MultiPathTM. It does this by examining and detecting pathogens in the water used by shrimp, pigs, and other species.

Test your animal feed

Using our proven MultiPath technology, we’re now able to test animal feed (shrimp, pigs and others) for pathogens.


Customer Question

“Why is testing feed so important…feeds have heat treatment in the manufacturing process. I had a colleagues who always argue with me stating… “no feed testing required for biosecurity surveillance”

Genics Answer

Many different feed types are used in Shrimp aquaculture. Fresh and fresh frozen broodstock feeds ( eg. Polychaete, squid), Artemia, artemia flake and algae for larval shrimp, and wet pellet feeds in some culture conditions. All these have the potential to pose a biosecurity risk to production. Heat extruded feeds, if they reach the required temperature during manufacture may not pose a biosecurity risk. The Genics Team will talk through real and perceived risks with customers on a case-by-case basis to design suitable testing programs.
