Laboratory

The diagnostic laboratory at Slate Hall is UKAS and DEFRA accredited.

We work very closely with the APHA on Salmonella control strategies and have a wealth of experience working alongside clients through outbreaks.

We can carry out accredited Salmonella testing on eggs, farm and environmental samples, as required by the Lion Code, and the full range of serological and microbiological profile testing.

We use a network of specialist molecular testing laboratories for any PCR diagnostics and surveillance.

As a client, you can access historic and current clinical records and certificates, as well as antibiotic usage figures and a detailed breakdown of costings, through our web-based clinical database.

We also offer farm, hatchery and feed mill salmonella auditing and can advise on salmonella control strategies.
