Laboratory Sections

When shipping samples to the lab, please note any shortened hours and days of closure listed on the Animal Diagnostic Laboratory home page.

Samples should be shipped overnight (UPS or Fed-Ex are recommended) and care should be taken to ensure that samples arrive to the lab during business hours. During holiday break, packages shipped via the USPS may be delayed due to the closure of Penn State mailing services.

Please call with any questions 814-863-0837 or email

A vast array of services and diagnostic tests are performed by our various laboratory units.

We do not do water analysis here at the Animal Diagnostic Lab but that service is available from Penn State's Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory.
