The National Bee Diagnostic Centre provides services and specialized training.
Our National Bee Diagnostic Centre (NBDC) is the first comprehensive laboratory in Canada to provide a full array of diagnostic services for honey bee and native bee pests, pathogens, and parasites.
NBDC provides diagnostic services for beekeepers, researchers and agencies across Canada. We use microbiology, microscopy and molecular techniques to identify pathogens that affect the health of all pollinators.
NBDC is proud to be part of the Technology Access Canada network, providing applied research, training, outreach, and innovation services for the beekeeping, pollination, and species conservation communities.
