҂ In order to ensure that we have the reagents in stock, a five-day turnaround time only applies to the Sheep Scab ELISA if the samples have been booked in, in advance, two weeks earlier. Otherwise, the test turnaround may be up to 10 days.
$ We are a United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS) accredited laboratory, and these tests which are marked with ‘$’ are accredited to the internationally recognised ISO/IEC 17025 standard for laboratory competence.
Please aim to submit fresh faeces as soon as possible after sampling to achieve optimal sensitivity. This is particularly important for the lung worm testing because the technique detects live larvae.
Please also ensure samples are submitted in appropriate containers to avoid possible spillage and contamination. Please see this article from BCVA for some handy advise on posting samples here.
