September 2021 Diagnostic Lab Fees Update

Friday, June 04, 2021

We would like to share upcoming pricing changes for the Animal Care Services Diagnostic & Research Histology Laboratory. To offset significant increases in supplier and labor costs over the past three years, we are increasing our diagnostic lab service prices beginning September 1, 2021.

Our diagnostic lab has not had a comprehensive price increase since 2018. We have worked hard to balance the financial impact on researchers during this challenging time with the long-term financial health and sustainability of our laboratory. The upcoming fee increase will help us fulfill our research support mission and continue providing extraordinary diagnostic services to our researchers.

Please see Diagnostic & Research Histology Laboratory for our updated price list. Although many testing costs have increased, there are exceptions and some tests will remain unchanged. Please note, these changes in prices affect only diagnostic services. Histology services are not part of this price adjustment the fees will not change in September 2021.

As a reminder, all clients will receive a monthly statement through Mosaic Vivarium for services rendered during the previous month. Statements include a detailed itemization of procedures performed. Please contact acs.finance@ubc.ca for any billing inquires.

Your continued consideration of our services helps improve the research infrastructure at UBC. We sincerely appreciate you and your business.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to acs.lab@ubc.ca.
