The University of Missouri Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (VMDL) is a full-service laboratory that offers timely and affordable animal diagnostic services. An interdisciplinary laboratory in the College of Veterinary Medicine, this lab serves vet practitioners, livestock and poultry producers, conservationists, public health officials, as well as the university’s Veterinary Health Center. Fully-accredited by the AAVLD and part of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN), its primary mission is to work with federal agencies to protect animal and human health.
The VMDL Serology lab section conducts both AGID and ELISA Coggins testing for equine infectious anemia. Like many university-based vet labs, the VMDL offers a number of online resources for veterinarians and other clients to facilitate a reliable process for requesting lab tests and getting the results in a timely manner. Use these links and PDF files to find their equine tests and lab fees, information about how to submit samples, and their online equine submission form (PDF file).
The faculty and staff of the VMDL work diligently to provide relevant, timely and cost-effective diagnostic services to our clients and to create a positive learning environment for our students and residents. As part of its teaching mission, the VMDL faculty provide formal residency training in clinical pathology and anatomical pathology and coursework instruction to veterinary and graduate students.
