Aquatic Health Inspection Testing

Turnaround time for all health inspections is 29 days based on the virology testing requirements set forth in the OIE Manual of Diagnostic Tests for Aquatic Animals and the AFS-USFWS Blue Book.

We strongly recommend two to four weeks advanced notice for scheduling purposes on all health inspection samplings.  Call 509-335-9696 or send an email to set up scheduling.
