Sample requirements & sending samples

Each disease has a set of different sample requirements. Please download our PSGHS quick guide for more information. All samples should be sent to St Boswells following Royal Mail guidelines.

PSGHS blood samples – please use red top tubes. Samples should be dispatched to us within 48 hours of collection and refrigerated until dispatch.

Testing for multiple diseases – Where testing dates coincide and samples are being submitted for EAE and MV/CAE, a single sample from each animal is sufficient, but the correct blood test information sheets must be completed for each.

Abortion material – PSGHS abortion material from members of the EAE accreditation should also go to the local SRUC Veterinary Services or APHA Centre that you normally use.

Non-Health Scheme testing – Please provide an extra blood sample/animal if you require non-Health Scheme tests done along with your Health Scheme tests. If you are importing animals, please contact PSGHS.

Scrapie – Scrapie genotyping requires an EDTA blood sample in purple blood tubes. For more information visit our Scrapie monitoring page.

Please send all PSGHS samples to: SRUC Veterinary Services, Greycrook, St. Boswells, TD6 0EQ / Tel: 01835 822 456 / Email:
