Available services and diagnostic tests performed by the Onderstepoort Veterinary Research campus (ARC-OVR) are grouped and tabulated in accordance with the organisation of specialities within the ARC-OVR. Diseases, which appear under their common names, and tests, are listed alphabetically within each section. Under "collection and submission of specimens" additional information is given on samples that are required for virology, especially when foot-and-mouth disease, African swine fever or rabies is suspected.

Test Time
"Test time" as defined in this manual represents the number of working days expected to elapse from the day the samples are received at the ARC-OVR to the day on which the results become available. Often a range of days is given because tests frequently have to be carried out in batches to be cost effective.
