SDSU Animal Health Lab

The South Dakota Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory (ADRDL) has served the citizens of the state and region with timely and accurate veterinary diagnostic services since 1887. A dedicated and experienced staff performs a full range of diagnostic testing services that arm veterinarians and health officials with the information they need to protect and improve animal and therefore, human health.

The staff of the ADRDL are nationally recognized for their skill in diagnosing key diseases of cattle, pigs, and other livestock. Additionally, the ADRDL supports veterinarians and caretakers of horses and companion animals, plays a vital role in identifying zoonotic diseases such as rabies, and helps to keep our food supply safe by testing food products for bacteria that may cause food-borne illness.

The ADRDL is one of fewer than 40 veterinary diagnostic laboratories accredited by the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD). In addition, the lab is an integral member of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN), a network of diagnostic laboratories across the US that help detect nationally significant animal diseases such as influenza and Foot & Mouth Disease. Expertise in detecting agents of food-borne illness is important in the ADRDL's roles as a regional labroatory for the Food Emergency Response Network (FERN).

Meet at south doors of teh ADRDL building on North Campus Drive.

SDSU Plant Diagnostic Lab

The Plant Diagnostic Clinic serves the state of South Dakota and the Great Plains region by providing fast and accurate plant health and diagnostic information for the agricultural and horticultural industries. We perform routine diagnosis of field crop and horticultural crop diseases, and occasionally serve as a point of contact in SD for major agricultural biosecurity issues related to plant health.

The Plant Diagnostic Clinic is also the SDSU Soybean Cyst Nematode Testing Service. We provide sample analysis and management recommendations to crop managers dealing with the most damaging pest of soybeans in the world - the soybean cyst nematode (SCN). SCN samples are analyzed, free-of-charge, for SD growers thanks to a grant from the SD Soybean Research and Promotion Council.

The Plant Diagnostic Clinic works cooperatively with other colleges and departments at SDSU (i.e. College of Education & Human Sciences on a Food Safety Challenge Grant to create an educational module; Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences on moldy grain and feed issues; Horticulture, Forestry, Landscape & Parks on diagnostic collaborations), as well as other partners in diagnostics/biosecurity across the country.
