The National Bee Diagnostic Centre is currently still open to receive samples and provide support to beekeepers and industry. Updates will be provided if changes in services occur.
Our National Bee Diagnostic Centre (NBDC) is the first comprehensive laboratory in Canada to provide a full array of diagnostic services for honey 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 pollinator health.
NBDC is proud to be one of 30 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)-funded Technology Access Centres in Canada. As a member of the Tech Access Canada network, NBDC provides applied research, training, outreach, and innovation services for the beekeeping industry.
We welcome collaborations with industry and researchers! If you are interested in visiting our lab and meeting our researchers, please contact us.
