The University of Minnesota Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory is approved by the National Animal Health Laboratory Network to test for African Swine Fever. Sample collection may only be done by a foreign animal disease diagnostician during a foreign animal disease investigation. Currently approved samples types include whole blood and tonsil tissue. Please contact your veterinarian or the VDL for more information on testing.
