Analytical Services and Grapevine Virus Testing Services to re-open May 11

Good news! We have been given the green light for CCOVI’s Analytical Services and Grapevine Virus Testing Services to re-open next week. Our hours will be more limited, but we hope to do your essential tests. We will begin accepting emails on Monday, May 11 to begin scheduling sample drop-offs for Tuesday, May 12.

To keep everybody safe, service procedures will be slightly different for accepting samples:

Step 1:
Download and fill out the appropriate Sample Submission form:
Analytical Services form
Grapevine Virus Testing Services form

Step 2:    
Email the form to (Analytical Services) or (Grapevine Virus Testing Services) as a PDF, scan, or picture of the filled form. (No paper forms please!)

Once we receive the order, we will schedule sample drop-off for the next day.

Step 3:
Package your samples in a closed box or bag with the company name on the outside.

Step 4:      
Bring your samples to Inniskillin Hall at the scheduled drop-off time. We will set up a table outside of the entry doors, since all of the doors are locked.  Leave your samples on the table and we will retrieve them shortly.

  • Sample drop-offs will be scheduled so that customers can avoid contact with each other. We will be setting up appointments between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
  • Make sure there is no headspace in your sample bottles so they can be stored overnight, if needed.
