An appropriate submission form must accompany all samples sent to Virology Division.
The information requested is necessary to determine which laboratory tests are appropriate, to minimise associated laboratory charges and to optimize result turn-around time.
It is our aim to provide accurate results and timely service. However many diagnostic tests are not performed daily and laboratory schedules may change. If your submission includes animals for export, large numbers of samples or for any other reason is time-dependent, please contact the lab to verify availability and turnaround time of specific assays.
Submission forms may be downloaded here from this website.
