Pre-register for diagnostics

For sending in large amounts of samples to Wageningen Bioveterinary Research (WBVR) for diagnostics, pre-registration may be needed. View the table below to see if pre-registration is needed, and fill in the form to prevent unnecessary delay in the testing of such an entry.

Fish diseases: other point of contact

Diagnostics on live (or fresh) fish is done by appointment only with our fish and shellfish diseases laboratory. This avoids unnecessary delays in testing.

When is pre-registration needed?

In most cases a prior notice is needed from 50 samples. The table below also lists different rules, and differences between individual or pooled tests. Finally, we list the minimum number of working days required between the pre-registration and the arrival of samples at our laboratory.

Pathogen Article number Type of test Individual test Pooled test Before arrival of samples

General All 50 50 3
