A $10 submission fee is assessed on each case.

Testing Schedule

Our goal is to provide accurate results and timely service. However, many diagnostic assays are not performed daily and/or testing schedules may change. If your case involves testing animals for export, testing show animals, testing animals to be sold, and/or testing a large number of samples, please contact the VDL (515-294-1950) prior to submission to verify the availability and turnaround time of specific assays. A phone call will often shorten turnaround time by allowing us time to prepare for testing prior to receipt of samples.

Fees are subject to change without notice.
