Subcontracting Services

From time to time, samples submitted may require testing at a non-ADDL (referral) laboratory. Every effort will be made to arrange testing at an AAVLD or ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. If non-accredited labs are the only provider of a test, ADDL will document the quality of the assay being requested. The ADDL will charge a nominal shipping fee, if applicable, as well as charge the rate of the referral laboratory for the required testing service. Click here for a list of Subcontracted Tests. Note: This list is subject to change without notice.

To view the information for a test, please select the test name from the drop-down list.
To view all tests, select 'All Tests' from the drop-down list.
