Parasitology

Visit our COVID-19 webpage for the most current updates on services including facility hours, administrative support, and testing times.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

Effective March 16, 2020

Due to staffing issues in Parasitology, there may be a 24-72 hour delay in testing turnaround time.  We anticipate at this time that this possibility will exist until mid June of 2020.  We apologize for this inconvenience.  For Parasitology questions, please contact Dr. Erin Burton at burt0233@umn.edu, or call her at 612-625-8100

Note: A $10 accession fee will be applied to all submissions. A centrifugation charge of $1.25 per tube may be applied. All fees are in US $.

Note on days tested and turnaround times: Samples must be received at least 1 business day before the scheduled testing day. New client accounts can take up to 2-3 business days to establish before testing can begin. Samples may not always be tested on the first scheduled day after they arrive; however, it is our goal to complete testing within the posted turnaround time. If rush testing is desired, please contact us.
