Animals may be referred to the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory by veterinarians for necropsy.
Ancillary laboratories will perform a full range of testing in histopathology, parasitology, microbiology, molecular biology, haematology, biochemistry and cytology.
The VDL will provide a comprehensive diagnostic service to veterinarians from southern New South Wales and north eastern Victoria. The only specimens that will be received directly from animal owners will be those for parasitology, particularly from farm livestock.
Services will be progressively rolled out from January 2012, once equipment is commissioned and test procedures are fully validated.
Veterinarians requiring a VDL Fee Schedule please email the Diagnostic Laboratory to request an electronic or hard copy. Email:firstname.lastname@example.org
