Virginia Tech Animal Laboratory Services (ViTALS) offers quality veterinary diagnostic services to external veterinarians through diagnostic service sections including anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, clinical microbiology, clinical immunology, clinical parasitology, and clinical molecular diagnostics.
To learn more about our services and laboratory submission process, please contact our Lab Central Receiving at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-231-4320.
Our lab requires that submission requests come through a veterinarian to ensure that a veterinarian is involved in the interpretation of test results and formulation of plans for patient care. The exception to this requirement is necropsy service.
There are several tests that we do not perform routinely due to low demand. Tests not listed in the ViTALS Testing & Fees document may be available at another laboratory. We can recommend a referral laboratory, however we encourage you to deal directly with the referral laboratory, as additional fees would apply to samples handled and shipped by ViTALS.
