New price book effective 1 July

New price books were posted out to all clinics at the beginning of June. If you haven’t received one yet, please just get in touch and we can send one out to you.

Where clinics have personalised biochemistry panels in place, the price increase on these will be the same as that for routine biochemistry testing (2%).

To make updating your practice management software easier, we can also provide you with Excel versions of our pricing. Should you require this, additional hardcopies or an electronic version of the price book, please contact your local Gribbles Veterinary laboratory or business development manager. Copies of the consumable order form can of course be downloaded from our website at any time.

As well as changes to pricing, there are a couple of other changes to the price book:

– Bulk milk & BVD testing – we have added in this new section with all the BVD and bulk milk testing options (instead of having them spread throughout the Serology and PCR sections). This should make it easier for you to find all the options available. Please note, our new Herd Guardian bulk milk packages are now also included.

– Calf scour panels – Coronavirus has been added to the 1-4 week panel and removed from the <1 week panel.

– Enteric disease in calves due to coronavirus is most commonly seen in animals aged between 1-3 weeks. As discussed in the October 2018 issue of VetScript (Calf diarrhoea diagnostics), coronavirus was not detected in any animals aged <1 week old and is generally only found in animals from 1-6 weeks old. Please note, in the new price book the <1 week panel has not been updated to exclude coronavirus. The price for this <1 week panel has been reduced inline with this change.
