Guidelines for Submitting Serology Samples for Fairs and Shows

The season for fairs and shows is fast approaching and plans should be made for performing inspections and tests.  The following information is a general review for submitting samples to ADDL/Serology.

  1. Samples hand-carried to ADDL by owners must be sealed using the veterinarian’s label or tape bearing the veterinarian’s signature.

  2. All regulatory charts must include submitting veterinarian’s signature and complete animal identification.

  3. ADDL Form 3 (Request for Serological Tests) must be completed and attached to all regulatory test charts.  ADDL will run only those tests requested on this form.

  4. A health certificate is the only necessary test record for 4-H exhibition.  Do not submit duplicate test charts.

  5. Use of BD-Vacutainer or Monoject tubes is preferred.  Venoject, Jelco or EDTA-treated tubes will not be accepted.

  6. Each tube must be identified with a tube number; additional i.d. is desirable.

  7. Tube numbers and numbers on chart must match and be in consecutive order.  Tubes should be packaged in consecutive order as well.

  8. Clear serum is preferable to whole blood.

  9. Tests for Pseudorabies will be performed daily (M-F).  Turnaround time will be 3-6 days (may be slightly longer at peak testing periods).

  10. Brucellosis tests are performed daily (M-F).  Turnaround time is 2-4 days.

  11. Swine samples for both Brucellosis and Pseudorabies will be tested first for Brucellosis, followed by Pseudorabies.  Turnaround time will be 4-7 days.

  12. ADDL will not release results to owners.

-If you have questions, please contact ADDL/Serology at 765-494-7451 prior to submitting samples.
