    Hagyard Equine Medical Institute Opens Real‐time PCR Lab
    Lexington, KY – December 11, 2017 – Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, the oldest and one of the largest private
    equine veterinary facilities in the world is proud to announce the opening of their new real‐time PCR Laboratory.
    Real‐time PCR is more sensitive, specific, and reliable than conventional PCR. Results can be relayed in a matter of
    hours instead of days.
    “Being able to provide top‐of‐the‐line care to the equine industry is important to us,” said Dr. Nathan Slovis of the
    McGee Medicine Center, Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. “We invested in this technology to provide our industry
    the first 24/7 PCR Laboratory. A disease outbreak or individual illness doesn’t always happen during business hours.
    It is important to obtain a timely diagnosis so that appropriate treatments can be implemented. Our goal is to set the
    standard for equine diagnostics.”
    Hagyard Laboratory is staffed with professional, certified Medical Technologists and Technicians that are committed
    to providing quality results. The laboratory is managed by professionals that have extensive knowledge and many
    years of experience in all areas related to equine veterinary laboratory medicine.
    Testing is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with special pricing for after‐hour samples and bulk testing. The
    Hagyard Laboratory also offers services in hematology, clinical chemistry, cytology, parasitology, endocrinology,
    microbiology and Coggins testing.
    For more information and a complete list of tests available please contact the Hagyard Laboratory at 859‐259‐3685
    or hdmlab@hagyard.com.
