The mission of the Poultry Diagnostic Laboratory at the University of Delaware, Lasher Laboratory in Georgetown, DE, is to provide diagnostic services to the Delmarva Peninsula commercial and private poultry producers in a timely and accurate manner. The laboratory is committed to support the research and educational programs of the university including interactions with other universities, regulatory agencies, commercial companies and individuals.
In addition to competent personnel and facilities, accurate test results and diagnoses depend upon the condition of the samples submitted for analysis. We hope that these guidelines will be helpful in collecting and submitting quality samples. If there are any questions regarding proper sample collection or preparation, call the laboratory for clarification or specific directives.
