Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratories in the United States
Smith, Donald F.
Though all states have capacity for animal health diagnostic laboratory services, only about half of them are connected to a university, typically land-grant universities where they are part of the respective veterinary college. Diagnostic laboratories that are separate from universities focus on the singular mission of diagnostics. As critical as that is for surveillance and public service, diagnostic laboratories within university settings have the added mandates of research and teaching.
