Serology

  1. Send ≥1 ml of serum per test or ≥3 ml blood.

  2. Send serum only whenever possible.  The submission of whole blood, even in separator tubes, often results in hemolysis and interference with some of the tests.

     

  3. Identify the tubes properly, making sure there are matching animal IDs on the submission form and the tubes.  Ship sera in racks or cardboard boxes with dividers.

     

  4. Submit acute and convalescent sera together in cases where paired sample serology is needed.
