New Bolton Center PADLS Lab Remains Open, Announces Updated Service Schedule

As of Monday, March 23, 2020, the Pennsylvania Animal Diagnostic Laboratory System (PADLS) – including Penn Vet New Bolton Center’s PADLS laboratory – remain open amid the progression of COVID-19.

Due to Pennsylvania’s efforts to mitigate against COVID-19, however, the New Bolton Center PADLS laboratory may be offering updated hours for services.

Please see the service schedule directory below for the most recent updates and contact information for each service.

If you are veterinarian, farmer or producer who suspects a high consequence disease due to increased sickness or death rates in your herd or flock, please call 717-772-2852 and press option 1 to speak with the veterinarian on call.  

In an effort to promote social distancing and keep our staff healthy, New Bolton Center's PADLS laboratories are operating at reduced staffing levels. This may cause testing results to be delayed more than usual. Please reach out to the individual service contacts listed below for any questions or concerns.
