Diagnostic Tests

A $10 submission fee and 1% hazardous fee is assessed on each case.

Testing Schedule
Our goal is to provide accurate results and timely service. However, many research and diagnostic assays are not performed daily and/or testing schedules may change. If your case involves testing animals for export, show animals, animals to be sold, and/or a large number of samples, please contact the VDL (515-294-1950) prior to submission to verify the availability and turnaround time.

Fees and test schedules are subject to change without notice.
