The Alabama State Diagnostic Laboratory offers Coggins Tests as part of a wide-ranging list of animal health testing services. You can use their general submission form or specific animal testing forms through their website, but like all official test results for Equine Infectious Anemia, you will also need to completely fill out USDA VS Form 10-11. Likewise, the serum sample must be collected by a fully-accredited and licensed veterinarian.
From the time the lab receives the specimen and necessary forms, a minimum of 2 business days are required to complete the test and report the results. Any supplemental tests may require additional time to complete. Moreover, the lab does not process packages or new test submissions during holidays and weekends. With a little planning, this should plenty of time, but you can find labs with even faster turnaround times if you’re willing to overnight the necessary specimen and forms. For dead animals, it is possible to make an after-hours submission for necropsy at the main Thompson-Bishop-Sparks Auburn location for Alabama State Diagnostic Laboratories.
