The Illinois Animal Disease Laboratory provides analytical support for state and federal animal disease eradication programs and disease outbreaks by examining blood and tissue samples. They conduct regulatory testing of animals for competition or export and test meat and poultry samples as part of the department’s inspection programs. The Laboratory provides pathology and histopathology services, bacterial and fungal cultures, serology, virologic testing, and molecular diagnostics. Additionally, in cooperation with other veterinary diagnostic laboratories, analysis for toxins, vitamins, and minerals, both in tissues and feedstuffs, can be arranged.
