We are a dedicated team that work hard and are committed to delivering reliable services.


We maintain an efficient service by being well organised and communicating regularly with our customers, providing results within a timely manner.


Our laboratory is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 9934. Some of the tests that we perform have been approved to the international standard ISO/IEC 17025:2017 (‘General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories’). To check the schedule, please click here:


The Wales Veterinary Science Centre was set up in 2015 by Iechyd Da (a consortium of welsh veterinary practices together with Welsh Lamb and Beef Producers Ltd), working in collaboration with Aberystwyth University. The WVSC was appointed by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) as a partner provider to deliver expert post-mortem examinations (PMEs) of new and re-emerging diseases of farm animals, contributing to an enhanced UK-wide scanning surveillance network. The WVSC is a not-for-profit company which, in addition providing PMEs, also supports the veterinary and agricultural sectors with other diagnostic laboratory testing, advice and training.

Our commitment to our customers:

The WVSC prides itself on the fast and efficient service that it provides but our emphasis is always on quality. Whilst we usually get results out much earlier than the publicised test turnaround times, during busy periods we may not get them out as quickly as you have come to expect. Please be assured that we will always do our utmost to ensure the publicised test turnaround times are adhered to.

We will treat the information you give us when submitting samples with strict confidence. Click here to view our latest Privacy Notice.
