Bovine Tests (255)
An accession fee of $8.00 is applied to each accession/case, not each specimen. An accession is defined as samples from the same animal / herd / flock, originating from a single animal owner, submitted for the same condition, collected at the same time. This allows clients to receive bulk testing of same species (from the same owner) under one accession. Poultry submissions requesting multiples tests (e.g., AI, Mg/Ms, culture, etc.) for a single flock are counted as one accession.
Turnaround times are estimates in business days and apply to individual tests. Actual reporting of test results depends on the full battery of tests requested, day of the week/time of day samples arrive at the testing laboratory, and the quantity/quality of samples submitted. Information on additional services and fees can be found here.
The tests and fee schedules are provided for use by TVMDL clients, including veterinarians and animal owners. Fees charged to animal owners by veterinarians may exceed test prices shown herein, reflecting the time, expertise, and expense necessary to collect the sample, ship it in an appropriate manner, interpret results, and provide treatment advice.
Detection of cantharidin, the toxic chemical produced by blister beetles, by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry. A $10.75 sample preparation fee will be added to feed samples.
One or more of the following:
|Bovine, Camelid, Caprine, Cervid, Equine, Ovine, Porcine||$54.00||Details|
|Panfungal PCR and Sequencing [Referral]||
Identification of fungal organisms by PCR and sequencing. This PCR is recommended to complement identification of fungal organisms on histopathology and cytology. The assay is not recommended when fungal organisms are not observed histologically, due to the potential of amplification of non specific contaminants.
Paraffin block or curls, 1 H&E slide, and 1 GMS/PAS stained slide.
Cytologic evaluation of digital images. Learn more about TVMDL’s digital cytology service, then download the submission form.
2-10 digital images (cytology and gross lesion images, if applicable) saved as JPEG or PNG files.
|Amphibian, Avian, Bovine, Camelid, Canine, Caprine, Cervid, Equine, Exotic, Feline, Ovine, Porcine, Rodent||$60.00||Details|
|Heavy Metal Panel – Mammalian (ICP/MS)||
Measurement of heavy metals by inductively-coupled plasma/mass spectrometry. Targets for mammalian species include lead, arsenic, cadmium, and thallium. If zinc testing is desired, please see Metal & Mineral Panel. A $10.75 sample preparation fee will be added to tissue specimens.
