Important Informations for the Rabies antibody titer test for pets
Inform yourself or when you enter a country outside of the EU!
We need SERUM for the investigation (minimum 500µl Serum without anticoagulants).
You have to fill in the following main formular for the diagnostic request and you have to send it with the sample to our address. An e-mail address or a telephon number would be helpful for us in case we have to speak with you.

Usually we start the test on Monday morning 9:00h (except on holidays) and the results will be sent to the veterinarians on Friday. The analysis of samples, which come later than Monday morning (9:00h) to the lab, will start on the proximate Monday. The results will be sent to the veterinarians on the following thursday. Modifications may be possible (e.g. at Christmas)!
All additional costs concerning sample transport (charges for transport, costs for the veterinarian border control, customs, duties and taxes etc.) must be paid by the sender of the sample before transportation (Please fill out the formular for transportation carefully!) – otherwise the transport costs will be charged by us before getting an analysis report; allocated costs will be then higher.
