Innovation in RTP is a series of monthly discussions by various companies based in and around The Research Triangle Park. The goals are to build awareness of companies in and near The Research Triangle Park, of their local and global impact and to strengthen the community of professionals in the Park, with the hope of increasing innovation and new business opportunities. 

Description

It can make you money, prevent losses, protect our food supply and improve animal welfare. And it’s what Advanced Animal Diagnostics (AAD) is all about.  We’re an innovative R&D company bringing high-quality, 21st century animal diagnostic tests to the farm. We use an animal’s own immune response to detect and stage infections to improve quality of life for producers, processors, animals and consumers around the globe.

The company’s first on-farm product will focus on improving milk production and quality by controlling mastitis, an infection of the milk-producing gland. Future products will monitor disease states, reproductive, nutritional and overall health status of production animals

The overall animal diagnostic segment exceeds $1 billion annually and continues to have solid growth prospects. With few major players in this fragmented market, and even fewer focusing on on-site health for valuable farm animals, AAD is poised to become the leading developer of diagnostic systems for valuable farm animals

Speaker:

David Calderwood is the VP of Engineering and Manufacturing at Advanced Animal Diagnostics, a developer of technologies for the rapid diagnosis of farm animal diseases.  Prior to AAD, David was VP of Engineering for Parata Systems, specializing in pharmacy automation.
