Guidance on Sampling

Please read guidelines for packaging and sending samples:

Sending Diagnostic Samples by DX in Scotland (formerly Legal Post)

Scottish practices can register for DX in Scotland (formerly Legal Post) so that laboratory submissions can be sent to our labs by 8 a.m. the next working day, including Saturdays. There are significant cost savings plus no limit to the amount that can be submitted per package. Please note that farm animal submissions must be submitted separately to companion animal submissions.
