WHAT WE DO

TRANSFORMING ANIMAL DIAGNOSTICS AND ZOONOTIC SURVEILLANCE

Convergent Animal + Health (Convergent A+H) is an animal pathogen surveillance company developing diagnostics for livestock and wildlife pathogens and for identification of pre-emergent zoonotic pathogens. Convergent A+H, in collaboration with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, has successfully completed proof-of-concept of the diagnostics test. Our proprietary, patent pending miRNA biomarker tests will transform how we monitor and treat livestock, protect against wildlife-borne diseases, and identify and prepare for future zoonotic pathogens that could lead to pandemics.

  • Livestock - allow timely, cost-effective detection of an animal’s exposure to pathogens before they show symptoms. Starting with parainfluenzas in cattle.
  • Wildlife – detect exposure to Chronic Wasting Disease in deer, for herd management and to ensure harvested deer safe for consumption (technology also applicable to BSE and Scrapie)
  • Zoonotic - identify animal-borne pathogens that could jump to humans (Convergence A+H's collaborators have identified previously unknown zoonotic pathogenic strains)
