Virus Isolation

The charge for the first sample includes a set-up fee plus the charge for the sample. Additional samples would not be charged the set-up fee, only the cost per sample. See appropriate test for cost of multiple samples.

Fluorescent antibody test (FAT)

The charge is for four pieces of tissue (what will fit on a slide) tested for two viral antigens. Requests for additional viral antigens would incur extra charges (per each antigen). When more than four pieces of tissue are received, costs would double accordingly. See appropriate test for cost of multiple samples.

The Companion Serology

The charge for the first sample includes a set-up fee plus the charge for the sample. Additional samples would not be charged the set-up fee, only the cost per sample. See appropriate test for cost of multiple samples.

Immunoglobulin Quantification

The charge for the first sample includes a set-up fee plus the charge for the sample. Additional samples per isotype would not be charged the set-up fee, only the cost per sample. See appropriate test for cost of multiple samples.
