The HATS lab uses the Swine Health Test Request Form. Identification of submissions intended for testing at HATS requires the “HATS Submission” box on the second page of the form to be selected.
Please indicate on the outside of the shipper or box the samples are intended for HATS testing.
For your added convenience we have HATS specific labels for you to affix to your packages.
