The test utilizes .5mL of serum or plasma to confirm pregnancy. For bovine specimens: 73 days since last calf (45 post calving + 28 days post breeding). For ovine/caprine specimens: 30 days post breeding.
PRICE: $3.00 per sample for in-state clients and $4.00 per sample for out-of-state clients, plus an accession fee.
