Anaplasma PCRBovineFresh Spleen, Whole blood (EDTA)Diplex Real-Time PCR, This test is designed to identify specific Anaplasma species(A. marginale and A. phagocytophilum) in a single reaction. Acceptable samples for this test include unclotted (EDTA) whole blood sample or, spleen. This test can be performed on individual or, pooled (up to 5) blood samples for $31.00. If a pool is tested positive, upon request, each sample in the pool will be tested subsequently @$15.00/animal. If apooled sample testing is requested, each bovine blood sample must be collected individually, in a separate EDTA tube, and transported to the lab. The lab will pool the sample in groups of 2-5.
Note: if pooling is not marked on the submission form, each sample will be tested and charged individually.
