PSGHS Accreditation Schemes
MV/CAE/EAE/Johne’s disease tests normally take 5-17 working days, with delays possible during very busy periods. Please help us to achieve turnaround times by making sure you have filled in the necessary paperwork.
Sample requirements & sending samples
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.
