Axiom Vet Lab provides a comprehensive range of very competitive, UKAS quality assured tests and services for the CHECS programmes (including TB status). It covers the whole of the UK and over 300 vet practices already use its farm animal diagnostic testing services.

Waiting for results can be an anxious time so Axiom aims to get the results to herd owners as quickly as possible. In the vast majority of cases this will be within five working days.

Axiom aims to simplify the process to achieve herd accreditation and to help minimise the impact of infectious diseases in herds. It does so as part of a team, with the herd owner and their vet.

  • Axiom provides detailed, easy to follow lab reports. Members and their vets can access advice from a vet who has been working in cattle health schemes for over 20 years.
  • 50% discount on the first year’s membership fee if you sign up to pay by direct debit.
  • A testing pack (containing tubes, forms, barcoded labels with the UK ear numbers, and courier/postage paid packaging) is sent out prior to the herd’s test.
  • Herd owners can promote the health status of their herd on Axiom’s website. Pen-side health declarations can be provided.
  • A disease cost calculator is available that can be personalised for a herd to show the cost of disease, testing costs and the financial benefit from controlling disease/s through the CHECS programmes.
