If requested, the lab will pool individual samples (approximately 10 per pool) for Mycoplasma screening. A pooling fee of $2.00 will be applied to each pool. When samples are pooled, the original samples will be kept refrigerated until the pooled result is available. Individual samples from a positive pool are automatically tested and charged the individual fee of $5.50 per sample in the pool.
