Porcine

Effective September 12, 2018   

Note: A $10 accession fee will be applied to all submissions. A centrifugation charge of $1.25 per tube may be applied, if necessary.   An additional 10% out of state surcharge will also be applied where animals or owners are from outside the state of Minnesota. All fees are in US $.

Note on days tested and turnaround times: Samples must be received at least one 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.
