- Influenza A virus H1N1 (swine and avian influenza)
- Newcastle disease virus
- Feline calicivirus (surrogate for norovirus)
- Feline herpesvirus
- Feline reovirus
- Infectious bovine rhinotracheitis
- Canine parvovirus

This service does NOT represent disinfectant approval as part of the Defra disinfectants approval scheme, which should be applied for in the normal way. However, prior to submitting new products for Poultry Orders approval, customers may wish to submit them for a 'range finding' test again Newcastle disease virus to give greater confidence in dilutions to be used when seeking formal approval.
