For microbiology testing, we accept samples from all species, except non-human primates.
For histopathology, formalin-fixed samples can be accepted from any species.Non-formalin-fixed whole bodies or heads are not accepted.
If samples we no longer accept are sent to us, we will return them to you or process as a send-out test with associated charges.

We will do everything possible to ensure that published turnaround times are met and results are delivered as quickly as possible. Turnaround time begins when the sample is received at the lab. We will attempt to notify you if we receive biological specimens that are of quality that prevents or limits our ability to perform our services to an acceptable standard or within the published turnaround times. Samples that do not meet our standards may include those biological specimens that are damaged, contaminated, incorrectly preserved or packed, and samples that do not meet our specimen volume requirements, or diagnostic images that have been corrupted.
Once the specimen is delivered, we assume any risk of loss or damage. We reserve the right to reject any specimen likely to pose an unreasonable health or safety risk to our lab staff.
Some tests in our directory are not performed at Zoetis Reference Laboratories. Turnaround times for these tests are dependent on the third-party laboratory that processes these tests.
After testing is completed, we retain biological specimens as follows:
|Nonfixed biologic specimens (eg, blood, urine, feces)
|EXCEPTION: citrated plasma in -20°C
|Histopathology specimens – wet tissues
|Histopathology specimens – FFPE (formalin-fixed paraffin embedded) tissues
|Minimum 3 years
|Minimum 3 years
Samples that cannot be processed in a manner that upholds our quality standards may require additional attention or, in some cases, may be rejected. In the event that we receive such a sample, we will attempt to contact you. Examples of suboptimal samples include: lack of clear patient identifying information; damaged or leaking containers; inadequate volume for testing; incorrectly preserved samples; and contaminated samples.
