Please follow these instructions for Blood Typing, Osmotic Fragility (OF), and other special Hematology testing. For OF and other special hematology tests you will also need to send a sample from a control animal. These tests require advance approval, and thus please email PennGen@lists.upenn.edu to get preapproval before taking any samples and shipping. If you don't get a preapproval, your request will be cancelled. To run these tests you MUST send a blood sample. If you have further questions, please e-mail PennGen@lists.upenn.edu.
A Note About Handwritten Forms: We no longer accept handwritten submission forms, so please make sure that you create an account for yourself on the PennGen Sample Submission Application, log in to your account, fill in the animal information, select the appropriate test to obtain a Submission ID for each animal, and then print the submission sheet and mail it along with the sample.
