Rabies testing

 
 
 
We play a vital role in tracking rabies in Colorado by providing rapid test analysis of animals suspected of carrying the virus. Trained Serology laboratory employees remove the brains from submitted animal heads to test for the rabies virus.
 
If you are bitten by an animal, contact a medical provider to determine the potential for rabies exposure, the need for treatment, and to decide whether to test the animal for rabies.
 
We are now offering an online secure self-service lab portal.
 
Note: This service must be requested and is only available to recurring and business customers.
