The diagnostic laboratory at Slate Hall is UKAS (UKAS accredited testing laboratory No 9613) and DEFRA accredited (DEFRA approved No’s CSPO 80 & PHS 70)

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 APHA and 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.
