We provide a range of tests to exotic bird owners including sexing, faecal screening, chlamydia, and psittacine beak and feather disease (PBFD).
How does it work?
Simply order your desired testing kit from us and we will send it to you, along with instructions on how to use it, and a submission form.
To help us make as accurate an analysis as possible, for the faecal tests and Chlamydia PCR, we require a three day pooled faecal sample, please do not send urates, the white part of the droppings. Please keep in a cool place, but not a fridge whilst collecting. For PBFD PCR and Sexing PCR, we need either a feather pluck containing pulp or a Heparin blood sample (to be taken by an exotic vet).
Sending in your samples
If you would like any further information on these tests, please do not hesitate to contact us by calling 01829 781855 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: as we are a laboratory and not a veterinary practice, we do not give advice regarding any treatments that may be available, as this is the responsibility of your exotic vet. Should interpretation be required, it will be stated on your report.
* Disclaimer: All test kits are to be returned to us within six weeks of purchase. No refunds will be given.
