Biosecurity advice when handling aborted material from horses

Abortions are not infrequent in horses and while not all abortions are caused by infectious agents, differentiating infectious from noninfectious causes by observation only is generally difficult. Biological material from mares who have aborted is often collected for veterinary examination and testing. It is very important to have good biosecurity to prevent the spread of infectious agents to either people or other animals when handling this material.
