Ground-breaking disease management technology

Pork MultiPath focuses on pathogen detection. Our technology is unsurpassed in its ability to co-detect multiple pig pathogens with sensitivity and specificity for multiple pathogen detection superior to current industry methods. All this adds up to data that empowers vets and farmers to significantly reduce the risk of disease and improve yield.

Respiratory Pork MultiPath™ detects and quantifies: 

Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serovar 1, 5, 7, 15 (APP1, APP5, APP7, APP15) 

Streptococcus suis, serotype 2, 3 (SS generic; SS2, SS3)

Haemophilus parasuis (HP) – Also known as Glaesserella parasuis (GP)

Pasteurella multocida (PM)

Mycoplasma hyorhinis (MHR) 

Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (MHP) 

Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV-2)

Enteric Pork MultiPath™ detects and quantifies: 

Lawsonia intracellularis ( LI)

Brachyspira pilosicoli (BP)

Brachyspira hyodysenteriae (BH)

Salmonella enterica (SE) incl. serovar Typhimurium (SEty)

Escherichia coli (EC) incl. F4, F5, F6, F18, F41, LT1, ST1, ST2, STX2e, eaeA

Porcine rotavirus (RV) RVA, RVB, RVC

PCV-2: Pork MultiPath gives early warning of infection

The porcine circovirus 2 (PCV-2) pathogen is causing severe economic losses in the global pig industry.  

Despite the introduction of several PCV-2 vaccines, the virus is still endemic in most countries, with one contributing factor being that the virus genotype keeps evolving, rendering vaccines ineffective.

The challenge for farmers and veterinarians is discovering which PCV-2 viral variants threaten their animals.  

Genics Pork MultiPath includes highly sensitive and quantitative PCV2 detection. Genics also provides accurate PCV-2 genotype sequencing to give you the exact genetic code of the PCV2 variant(s) in your samples. We’re empowering farmers and vets with the best knowledge and data, to protect our animals from evolving disease threats, improving herd health, and lowering the burden of speculative antibiotic dosing. 


“As a veterinarian in the pork industry, I am excited to now have commercial access to Pork MultiPath™ panels for enteric and respiratory pathogens. We have never before had the ability to detect so many pathogens from a single sample. This surveillance capacity will be very useful as we seek to continually improve herd health and antimicrobial stewardship.”

Dr. Yvette PollockVeterinarian - SunPork Australia

“We turned to Genics Pork MultiPath pathogen detection technology to solve inaccuracies in identifying severe health issues in some of our pigs. Where other laboratory-based technologies had failed, Pork MultiPath™ succeeded, and as a result we’ve been able to optimise our vaccination program and become more efficient in improving our herd health and animal performance.”

Valentin CusnirVeterinarian and Farm Manager - Alexa Farms, Australia

“Australian Pork is thrilled to be partnering with Genics on such an important project, protecting Australia’s pig herd health. With African Swine Fever in our region, there’s never been a more important time to look to new technologies, such as Genics’ MultiPath™ to care for our animals via early detection of animal disease.” 

Margo AndraeCEO - Australian Pork Limited (APL)

“Pork MultiPath™ gave our team the evidence we needed to implement data-driven management decisions to improve our production systems.”

Brenden McClellandManager - Belmont Pastoral Company, Australia

The Pork MultiPath technology is something our industry has been seeking for a long time. This technology gives us an accurate, quantitative pathogen profile in a single affordable test. At SunPork Farms, we are using the technology to inform improved herd health management decisions across our farms.

IMPORTANT – A copy of the completed Shipping & Declaration must be placed on both the outside (in a plastic sleeve) and inside of your parcel. Take a photo or scan of this completed declaration and upload with your submission on my.genics.com.au portal or email to info@genics.com

SHIPPING NOTICE – If the shipping company, DHL for example, consider the ethanol a dangerous good, store your samples for 24 hours (preferably in the fridge), and then tip off the ethanol leaving the samples moist. Small amounts of ethanol preserving a sample is an exempt dangerous good and can be shipped. To save money and time ensure your parcel is not too large. It needs only be large enough for your samples.
