A new method for the detection of AHPND-bacteria (AP4) has been published and is available for download.

The advantage of the AP4 method over the previously published AP3 method is that the it has 100 times higher sensitivity. Because of its higher sensitivity, the bacterial culture enrichment step needed when using the AP3 with low levels of AHPND bacteria may be omitted. However, the AP4 method should not be considered as a replacement for the AP3 method but simply as an alternative choice for the users to choose should they need a more sensitive detection method.
