What is Lawsonia?
Lawsonia intracellularis is an obligate intracellular bacteria and a causative agent of proliferative enteropathy (PE). Proliferative enteropathy affects swine and horses worldwide, as well as many other documented species
Lawsonia intracellularis is a very fastidious organism to culture. It is slow-growing and requires a microaerophilic environment. There are very few labs worldwide which are able to maintain these cultures. At Gut Bugs, Inc. we have perfected the art of maintaining virulent and avirulent Lawsonia cultures.
