Important Information - Maintenance – Rabies Testing
To ensure our secure laboratory and equipment are maintained to the highest standard we will be closing to enable our engineers to gain access for servicing.
This will be done in February, with a timetable as follows:
03 Feb 21 (Wed) Last tests will be set up
05 Feb 21 (Fri) Tests from 03 Feb 21 will be read and reported.
05 Feb 21 (Fri) No testing
12 Feb 21 (Fri) Normal testing resumes (Subject to engineer service sign off).
15 Feb 21 (Mon) First results will be reported.
This means that for the approximate period of seven days, no rabies results will be available. As with previous shutdowns we will clear the backlog as quickly as possible to enable your results to get back to you within our usual normal published time-scales.
Express Testing will not be available between 05 Feb 21 and 11 Feb 21 as the unit is closed and no tests can be set up, regardless of their urgency. As mentioned above normal testing will resume on Fri 12 Feb 21 subject to engineer service sign off.
If you are aware that any clients require certificates before 05 Feb 21 we would encourage you to send in samples as soon as possible. This will avoid client disappointment where we cannot put the sample on test.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information regarding the shutdown.
