WVDL to Refer All Mineral and Trace Nutrient Testing

Permanent Change to Take Effect April 1


The Chemistry and Toxicology testing section at the WVDL Madison laboratory will refer all mineral and trace nutrient testing to Michigan State University’s Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. This action is in response to an equipment failure and subsequent decision to not replace this equipment.  Approximately 500 tests per year at WVDL will be affected by this change.

Starting April 1st, 2019, all mineral and trace nutrient testing will be referred to MSU. Michigan State’s published turnaround time is 5 business days for this testing. Clients will be charged the published testing fees located on the MSU website in addition to the $20 referral fee routinely charged for out-sourced testing services.

We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause our clients and invite feedback at any time. If you have any questions regarding this issue please contact the WVDL and ask to speak with a staff member in our Chem/Tox Lab
