Serums for research are selected exclusively by a veterinary doctor in sterile polypropylene tubes (Epindorf type) in a volume of at least 0.5 ml and are tightly closed for transportation.

Serum must be transported in a thermocontainer (thermos) with ice. When delivering serum to the laboratory, you must have an accompanying document issued by a veterinary doctor. It is possible to send the sera in a thermocontainer (thermos) also by courier mail, necessarily with an accompanying document, a copy of the first page of the owner’s passport, animal passport and a receipt confirming payment for research. For those who live in Kiev or Kiev region – sampling is possible in the city of residence.

The cost of research is 2000 UAH. 00 kopecks When paying for research by bank transfer, the receipt of payment must be attached to the accompanying document.

The research result is written out on the official letterhead in Ukrainian and English. Check the correctness of all the data in the accompanying document – especially the inscriptions of the surname, owner’s name and animal names in English.

Serum samples without an identification number, animals (microchip) and samples unsuitable for research (hemolyzed) or those that have been received with a violation of the integrity of the container (test tubes) are not subject to research and are disposed of.

The period for testing a sample is 10 days (if necessary, the period can be reduced to 4-5 days, subject to an increase in the cost of research).

With us you can rent certified containers for transporting animals, or get a full support service for organizing the transportation of an animal abroad.
