Animal Health and Water Microbiology Laboratories

Introduction

The Animal Health Laboratories are Tasmanian Government owned laboratories that provide NATA accredited (ISO/IEC 17025) laboratory testing services in the field of animal health and water microbiology testing.
 
The laboratory tests specimens from livestock (including aquatic species) as part of the Tasmanian Biosecurity strategy. This strategy supports primary production in Tasmania and identifies endemic and exotic pests and disease risks. Specimens from wildlife are received under this program.

Details of services offered, and associated fees, are available at the links below. .

Please note that the laboratory does not charge a fee for investigating a suspect case of an emergency animal disease.

More information about NATA can be found on their website - www.nata.com.au.
