Pooled Trich PCR
RMRAHL offers pooled Trich InPouch testing. The cost is $7.00 per sample. You will still need to collect the individual samples in InPouches as the pools consisting of 5 samples will be done at the lab. Please note, if any of the pooled samples are found to be positive, PCR will need to be done on each of the five individual samples at a cost of $25.00 per sample.  

If using pooled PCR and traveling out of state, please make sure the state to which you are traveling accepts pooled Trich PCR samples.

Trich Submission Requirements
Any Trich InPouch samples requesting culture must be received within 48 hours of collection.
 

Any Trich InPouch samples requesting PCR or Pooled PCR must be received within 72 hours of collection. 

Although RMRAHL advises against using Lactated Ringers (LRS), if used, it must be received within 24 hours of collection and will be transferred to either an InPouch or Transit Tube (depending on requested test) upon arrival, and the submitting veterinarian will be charged the cost of the media as well as a transfer fee.  EXPIRED POUCHES AND TUBES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Once samples are received in the laboratory, they become the property of the laboratory and will not be returned to the client for any reason.
