COVID-19 updates

Now that we are in Alert Level 2 most of our services have recently changed back to normal or near normal.  Some changes to normal from Level 3 restrictions are as follows:

· Histology samples for our Palmerston North clients have resumed being processed locally, so samples can be sent directly to our Palmerston North laboratory instead of to Christchurch.

· Equine oestrone sulphate testing is now available again.

· All laboratories will now be offering essential services on Saturdays. Samples received but not tested on Saturday will be partially processed and tested on Monday as per Level 4 protocol.

· Post-mortem services have resumed per normal protocols. Please note, as per prior to COVID-19, post-mortems are not available in our Hamilton or Christchurch laboratories.
