Cervid Tests (161)
An accession fee of $7.00 is applied to each accession/case, not each specimen. 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.
|Abomasal Worm Count [Referral]||
Quantitative and concentration technique to detect and determine worm burdens in the abomasum and intestines of livestock and other ungulates.
Submit the entire abomasum (compartment four) and contents. Submissions of partial organs or only contents will result in inaccurate counts.
|Bovine, Caprine, Cervid, Exotic, Ovine||$60.00||Details|
|Brucella spp. (Culture)||
Detection of Brucella spp. by culture.
Specimen: One or more of the following: fresh fetus, placenta, testicle, swab.
|Bovine, Canine, Caprine, Cervid, Equine, Exotic, Ovine, Porcine||$12.00||Details|
Measurement of sodium, potassium, and chloride by automated analyzer.
0.5 mL serum, lithium heparin plasma, ocular fluid, or urine.
|Lepto. autumnalis (MAT)||
Detection of antibodies to lepto. autumnalis using the quantitative microscopic agglutination test. Beginning screen is 1:100.
1 mL serum
Measurement of total cholesterol by automated analyzer.
0.5 mL serum or lithium heparin plasma
|Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Serotyping (rtPCR)||
Differentiation between common serotypes of epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (serotypes 1, 2, and 6) by real time PCR.
Previously extracted nucleic acid
|Bovine, Camelid, Cervid||$40.00||Details|
Detection of desmethylbromethalin, the toxic metabolite of bromethalin, by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry.
One or more of the following: 2-5 g fresh adipose tissue, kidney, brain, liver, bait.
|Trace Mineral Panel (ICP/MS)||
Measurement of trace minerals by inductively-coupled plasma/mass spectrometry. Targets include copper, cobalt, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, and zinc.
One or more of the following*:
--both 0.5 mL EDTA whole blood and 1 mL serum (both sample types are required);--5 g fresh liver;--50 mg fresh liver biopsy (approx. 3 Tru-Cut samples, no fluid added); or--500 g feed.
For birds, 0.6 mL EDTA or heparinized whole blood is adequate.
*Serum selenium provides current day levels, while whole blood selenium indicates selenium status over a longer period of time. TVMDL can interpret both serum and whole blood selenium concentrations for cattle, horses, sheep, birds or white-tailed deer. For goats, TVMDL has reference values for serum or plasma only.
Turnaround time is 1-3 days for serum/blood samples; 2-5 days for tissue or feed samples.
|Brucella abortus / suis (Card Agglutination)||
Detection of antibodies to Brucella abortus and Brucella suis, the causative agents of brucellosis, by card agglutination.
1 mL serum or plasma
|Bovine, Camelid, Canine, Caprine, Cervid, Equine, Ovine, Porcine||$0.00||Details|
Detection of pentobarbital in submitted samples.
Specimen: 10 g liver or stomach content, medication, livestock feed, pet food.
|Parasite ID – Uncommon (Gross Identification) [Referral]||
Identification of uncommon, rare, or unusual endoparasites or ectoparasites based on morphological characteristics.
Individual or multiple parasites. Presence of two or more different parasites may reflect on charges.
