SOUND DIAGNOSTICS, INC. offers serologic screening for detection of antibodies to the following infectious diseases of rabbits.
- About 0.25ml of serum is needed to perform the tests, thus obtain about 0.5ml of blood.
- In a microtainer serum separator tube, centrifuge the specimen until the cells are below the gel before sending. Serum may be sent in the same tube or in a different plastic vial.
- Label sample tubes clearly. If paired sera are submitted, preferably collected 3-4 weeks apart, identify by dates of collection and use a separate request sheet for each sample.
- If serum is to be sent within 24 hours, refrigerate; if it is to be sent at a later date, remove and freeze.
- Enclose a completed request form with each sample. Mail samples in a small box or padded envelope.
- Ambient temperature is acceptable for shipment. Overnight mail is unnecessary.
