Ancera Releases Suite of Pathogen Monitoring Tools for Poultry Industry Solutions Providers


Ancera has released a new suite of comprehensive monitoring tools that enables allied companies of the poultry industry—including makers of vaccines, feed additives, litter amendments, antimicrobials, sanitation supplies, and quality control equipment—to continuously monitor their products and processes, to quantify their impact on performance and food safety. The suite of tools also helps reduce costs and increase margins with scalable trial management and technical services.

Built upon a standardized and scalable framework, Ancera’s system allows companies to design, test, and price product field trials before deploying resources to the field. This enables all parties to agree on common success criteria, scope, and cost, followed by robust, advanced analytics to assess product effectiveness. Field trials executed under real-world conditions better represent solution performance in a production system and allow allied companies to comprehensively quantify their value. Following a successful field trial, the system can remotely monitor product deployment to predict product performance issues and proactively schedule technical services.

Ancera first partnered with four pilot customers to understand and incorporate vendor requirements into the product, and found that vendors face a series of business challenges, ranging from longer sales cycles to higher costs of servicing customers. Ancera’s platform gives allied companies tools to improve their business models by significantly decreasing the time and monetary costs associated with customer acquisition, without the overhead costs of traditional labs and time-consuming sales practices. Moreover, the advanced system serves as a sales support tool, providing objective, third-party verified product proof, thereby increasing business margins.

The new platform represents a significant step in expanding Ancera’s application-specific monitoring systems—including Coccidia, Salmonella, Clostridium perifringens, and Total Viable Bacteria—toward its vision of a digital command center for food production, food safety, and procurement.
