IMPORTANT NOTICE:

We opened a new state of the art poultry laboratory in the Pentlands Science Park (Penicuick) in February 2018. Since then, the laboratory has gone from strength to strength and we are now relocating all the testing currently performed at Crowshall laboratories to the new laboratory from Monday 2nd July 2018.

From that date, please ensure that all the samples for salmonella testing are sent to:

Poultry Health Services
The Milton Building
Pentlands Science Park
Bush Loan
Penicuik
EH26 0PZ

Please, destroy any old submission forms with the Crowshall address and replace them with this one.

Your point of contact to order sampling kits and for general lab enquiries remains the York lab which can be contacted on 01904 620968 or email yorklab@biobest.co.uk

The new laboratory operates 7 days a week and it is UKAS and DEFRA accredited. In addition to salmonella testing it performs a number of other tests for hatcheries, farms, egg packing stations and food processing plants in addition to diagnostic tests for veterinary practices.

If you would like to know more about the range of tests that we perform and our discounted prices for routine or bulk work, please contact Stuart Marshall on 0131 440 2628 or email Stuart.marshall@biobest.co.uk

Once you start using the new laboratory services, all your results will be securely stored in our new IT system Digiflock together with your post mortems, visit reports, flock health plans and prescription records. We will continue emailing you these reports as usual. You will benefit from being able to access to your own records 24/7 with your unique client secure access code and to some exclusive data analysis that we will be offering to our clients.

I am sure that you will be delighted with the service from the new laboratory and I look forward to continuing working with you in these exciting times.
