Laboratory for Udder Health (LUH)

Testing Fee Updates

The Lab for Udder Health will begin charging a $10 accession fee, effective July 1, 2021.  The revenue from this fee will support important lab infrastructure including receiving, accounting, administration, information technology, and our robust quality control and quality assurance program. All other laboratory sections in the UMN Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory charge the same accession fee.

We are also taking this opportunity to reduce the price of many of our other testing fees to better reflect our costs. In addition, we are now offering volume pricing for full mastitis cultures, and have added two new discounted panels for troubleshooting high bulk milk bacteria counts.
