    **UPDATE TO SHORTAGE OF PULLORUM ANTIGEN** 01/27/2019

    It's been a tough year to get Salmonella Pullorum antigen. The government shutdown did not help this issue either. A very small batch was distributed with a JUNE 2019 exp. I did not purchase this antigen, but will be PURCHASING/SHARING 2020 exp. **GET ON THE WAITING LIST** Thank you for your patience. :highfive:

    Hello BYC!

    Salmonella Pullorum Antigen for NPIP testing. Many manufactures no longer distribute 100 dose vials of the Pullorum Antigen and this leaves me with a lot of extra! This is perfect if you are a smaller breeder, or exhibition, in need of a smaller amount of antigen!


    Included will be a photograph of my bottle, copies of the original label, serial number, and inserts.

    I am selling the extra in 50 tests, and 100 tests, in amber dropper bottles.
    AFTER WAITING LIST IS FULFILLED ~ First come first served at these prices:

    50 tests - $27

    100 tests- $47

    +$11 USPS Shipping up to 2 bottles
    +$13.50 for 3+ bottles
    Continental US only
    Heat/Ice pack included


    If you have any questions, please ask! Again, this is first come first served once the waiting list is fulfilled. Please inquire for availability.
    Email, Call/Text [email protected] 269-213-0150 It is not okay to contact me with any soliciting. Not shipping to AK, HI, PR. Please verify your state regulations.

    As of 2/21 there is still no movement on the manufacturing of Pullorum Antigen Stain. It is still pending FDA approval. Open spots available on my waiting list.

    3/8/2019 Antigen is NOT yet available from the manufacturer. I was asked to call back at the end of this month (March) and unless my back order is filled, I will not know more until then. Sorry if any of my updates are repetitive, I have had lots of inquiries, and not sure who I've already told what. Thanks everyone for your patience! I still have a spaces available for the waiting list.

    If your state has a plan B for 2019 if the shortage continues, please share your states plan. In Michigan we were allowed to use expired antigen in 2018. Not sure what Michigan's plan is for 2019

    Hi SarahLeta! I have a brand new bottle of the antigen that expires 6/2019, and I'm in Michigan also. I need enough to test my flock and a few others but might be interested in offering up some of my extra to others as well. Let me know if you'd like to work together on getting some antigen out to those who need it. Thanks!

    I don't know about MI, but Pullorum tests are free in WI with fair and show entries.

    Pinckney, mi
    Hi. I’m in MI as well and would like to buy serum from you. I’m in SE MI, where are you? I need it ASAP rather than waiting if at all possible. 50 tests would be sufficient.

    I am in SW Indiana and also would like to get on the list. I've been watching for any more information on a release/production date but haven't seen much of anything so I appreciate the updates! I also just started a FB page NPIP Blood Testers for testers to join to stay up on events or find others who may be able help with any type of questions. And I do mean JUST started it, like 5 minutes ago so it is very new and has 1 member right now. Me! I also plan to put together a list of any testers who would want their contact info published for flock owners to get in contact with for their area.

    This is like watching paint dry waiting for this antigen to become available again.

    From Twin City Poultry: ATTENTION ANTIGEN CUSTOMERS: We have been told by the manufacturer that they are hoping to be approved by the USDA sometime the end of April?.
