MRSA screening service

Surrey Diagnostics offer a ‘rapid MRSA screen’ service.

In the March 2005 issue of RCVS News, the Royal College issued a warning to Veterinary practices that they should carry out regular MRSA testing.

You can send samples from appropriate slides to our laboratory for rapid and accurate testing – including table and bench surfaces, apparatus, animals and staff.

Samples can be sent through the post on transport swabs. We can provide transport swabs if you do not have any in your practice.

The samples should be sent to us within 24 hours of being taken and the results can be available to you within 24 hours of being received at our laboratory.

This service is available at a cost of only £22.00p per sample and discounts are available for regular testers.

If you are interested in this service or would like to know more then please contact us.
