Important notices about Trich testing...

AHL offers Pooled Trich Testing.  The cost is $35.00 per pool of 5 samples.  You will still need to collect the individual samples in InPouches or Trich Transit Tubes as pooling is conducted only in the laboratory.  Please note, if any of the pooled samples are found to be positive, PCR will be done on each sample in the pool at a cost of $25.00 per sample.

If using Pooled PCR and traveling out of state, please make sure the state to which the bulls are traveling to accepts Pooled Trich PCR sample results.

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

Although AHL advises against using Lactated Ringers (LRS), if used, the sample 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.
