NOTICE: The Animal Health Diagnostic Laboratory (AHDL) is pleased to announce that
our sister laboratory, the Animal Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory (AMDL) will be
providing the Molecular Testing of Biological Materials (MTBM) Assay in-house. The
AMDL has developed and validated the assay for the current viral profile. This in-house
assay has several advantages including enhanced sensitivity, quicker turnaround
time, requires less test material and at a reduced cost.
Starting January 11, 2013 all biological materials for the MTBM-M Assay will be
conducted in-house by the AMDL. The submission process remains the same, with submission
of the On-Line MOLECULAR TESTING OF BIOLOGICAL MATERIALS (MTBM) REQUEST FORM for
each sample (link found below). Samples can be delivered anytime to the AHDL, located
in Building 429. Samples submitted by COB Tuesday will be submitted weekly to
the AMDL Wednesday morning.
