Diagnostic of bird’s contagious illness must be timely and error-free. Sometimes only bacteriologic methods for some bacteria agents’ identification is not enough. One of such bacteria is Avibacterium paragallinarum, that cause contagious poultry disease Infectious coryza. That why the aim of this study was to optimize method for Avibacterium paragallinarum identification by polymerase chain reaction. Selection of temperature and time models give opportunity to make reaction highly sensitivity and specific. Also reaction became economically profitable because of possibility to use combine samples.

Keywords: Infectious coryza, polymerase chain reaction, molecular diagnostics, Avibacterium paragallinarum.
