New $2.5M veterinary lab to be constructed on UNH campus
DURHAM - The New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory is getting a new home on the University of New Hampshire campus.
The lab assists the state commissioner of agriculture and the state veterinarian in their efforts to monitor and control important animal diseases. It also provides diagnostic services to hundreds of veterinarians from New Hampshire and New England who use the lab's services for the diagnosis of animal diseases in pets, farm animals, wildlife, zoo and marine animals.
A $2.5 million construction project will consist of a one-story, 6,500-square-foot facility near the Macfarlane Greenhouses at Main Street and North Drive.
It's expected to be completed in August and follows an extensive reorganization two years ago that has resulted in record revenues generated from service fees.
