chain reaction (PCR) test to determine if any of 10
different virulence genes are present. If needed, whole
genome sequencing may also be done to further classify the farm's bacterial challenge. These tests are then
compared to the Bacillus strains library to assess and
offer the best strains to protect birds against specific
pathogens present on the farm.

Customized approach
"Wide varieties of pathogenic bacteria create quite diverse
challenges from company to company and even complex
to complex," said Chris Kromm of Arm & Hammer. The
bacterial load (quantity) and genetic makeup contribute to
this diversity.
The benefits of a customized approach will focus on
the farm challenge and maximize the effect of a custom
product. An interesting opportunity for layer companies
is to target subclinical pathogenic challenges. These
challenges affect bird health and performance but may
not be observed as a clinical disease. It is not until a

Customer bacteria samples are grown on a petri
dish. A robot counts the number of bacterial cells
(colony-forming units or CFU) and then transfers
a predetermined number of isolated CFUs into a
96-well block for growth and further analysis.

successful intervention strategy is implemented that the
true effects of the subclinical challenges are evident.
Customized products containing proprietary Bacillus
strains are also offered by Arm & Hammer. The customized process begins by understanding the microbiome of a
customer's birds from the day of hatch to pullet to lay. After
