Immunological techniques have been developed to monitor reproduction under practical conditions. Of these, techniques for confirmation of oestrus and diagnosis of pregnancy are of major importance. The milk progesterone test for dairy cattle and the oestrone sulphate test for pigs are considered and a recently developed novel cow side milk progesterone test is described. Owing to the rapid development of immunosensors for 'real-time' detection of an analyte, the application of immunosensors for on-farm monitoring of reproduction seems possible within a few years.
