Bovine Trich Sample Handling Reminder

As we move into the busy bull breeding soundness and Trichomoniasis testing season, KSVDL offers three tips to better assure testing accuracy.

  • Samples must be submitted in an InPouch™ TF pouch or tube
  • Samples must be maintained at 59° to 99° F after collection and during transport to KSVDL
  • Samples must arrive in the lab within 72 hours of collection

When shipping during the winter, placing 2-3 ice packs warmed in a microwave in the shipping container will help keep the samples from becoming too cool.

For more information, please contact KSVDL Client Care at 866-512-5650 or clientcare@vet.k-state.edu.
