3. Research

At Tilad, we are open to opportunities related to research into veterinary diagnosis, protocol development and creative solutions to difficult issues in animal husbandry and disease.

Our current research into issues related to abuse in camels in beauty pageants is set to determine international protocols for future pageants.

4- Bio-safety Laboratory

We focus on providing resources and expertise regarding the assessment and control of biological hazards including recombinant and synthetic DNA, infectious agents, and human materials.

Our biosafety services include:

1.Biosafety and blood borne pathogen program development and implementation.

2.Training, emergency response, and assisting principal investigators (PIs) to register their biological projects.

3.Containment facility design, review, and guidance on safe handling of biological agents, proper biological waste disposal, and decontamination procedures.

5- PATHOLOGY, Cell Biology AND CYTOLOGY

Our cell biology team conducts experimental veterinary research using cell culture technology – an alternative to using live animals.

We focus on:

1.Reproduction research of birds and mammals, including sexual organ cell culture.

2.Cell line establishment, germ cell culture, embryonic and adult stem cell culture.

Tilad implements innovative tissue sampling and testing approaches to increase diagnostic certainty for a wide range of animal infections and toxicities.

We work on carcasses, formalin-fixed tissue and body samples in order to detect abnormalities and potential disease in the tissue through the use of different staining procedures.

We screen organs such as lungs, liver, kidney, brain, heart, spleen, lymph nodes and skin using a basic staining procedure with Hematoxylin and Eosin.

Histopathology testing:

  • Pathogen Identification
  • Avian Sexing
  • Avian Species Identification
  • Chromosome Karyotyping
  • FISH-localization of genes and
    molecular markers

Meiotic study in animals, Spermatogenesis

7- BACTERIOLOGY

We use cutting-edge approaches to detect and identify specific bacteria and determine antibiotic sensitivities for animal infections, resulting in a more specific and confident treatment plan.

Microbiology techniques are utilized to detect bacteria and provide antibiotic sensitivities for infections affecting the specific species.

We offer microbiology testing services, including the isolation and identification of infectious agents from animals. These including pathogenic bacteria and fungi:

1.Bacterial culture; Milk * Water *Animal feed  *Soil

2.Anti-microbial Susceptibility Testing ( bacterial and fungal )

4.Microbiological standards of camel milk

5.MRSA Screening

6.Detection of E. coli O157:H7

8- Virology

We carry out investigations into a large number of viral diseases affecting animals to assist in testing vaccines, prevalence of viral infections and characterization of viruses using the following approaches:

1.PCR detection

2.Cell culture for pathologic lesions

3.Vaccines trials

9- Biochemistry

  • A primary goal of our analytical chemistry team is to eradicate mineral deficiency death in animals. After developing several analytic techniques, we have identified ways of producing optimal animal growth and function and have overcome the mineral deficiency problem in the region.

    We offer a full range of electrolyte and blood enzyme testing for each patient providing for a more complete diagnosis than the standard approach of single issue testing. These include:

    • Total protein, Albumin, Urea, Creatinine, ALT, ALP, GDH, γGT, CK, AST, Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Total CO2 (bicarbonate), Calcium, Phosphate, Magnesium, Glucose, β-Hydroxybutyrate, Bilirubin, Bile acid, Cholesterol, Lactate dehydrogenase, Sorbitol dehydrogenase, α-Amylase, Lipase, Immunoreactive trypsin (trypsin-like immunoreactivity), Serum amylase and lipase activities.
    • We provide testing of minerals and trace elements: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Iron, and Manganese in biological specimens and animal feed.

10- Hematology

We provides simple or multiple blood tests and analyses to provide a comprehensive answer to broader animal problems. This results in a more specific and confident treatment plan.
