As the majority of Lactanet’s services meet the criteria defining essential services, we have organised our services to serve you as well as possible while observing all the hygiene and disinfection rules recommended for everyone’s safety and also to participate in the great collective effort to combat Covid-19. Consequently, additional security measures and changes in the movements of our employees are put forward to meet this objective.
NEW “NO CONTACT” PROCEDURES AND DISINFECTION OF BOXES
All our services are offered “without contact” from the collection of samples at the farm to the laboratory, including disinfection of the boxes on the way to and from the laboratory, our staff is equipped with disinfection equipment, gloves, etc. You will find the list of measures here for Atlantic. Compliance with all the measures we implement is mandatory and we ask for your cooperation and understanding. Good communication with your technician will be a key element in the successful implementation of these measures.
REDUCTION OF TRAVEL
The collective effort also requires us to reduce employee travel. We are reorganizing collection routes to ensure that our technicians collect all samples from a territory over a period of two days a week. Our technicians are instructed to work with their clients to agree on collection days. This procedure will be “without contact” until further notice. The sample bottles contain a preservative agent (pill) to ensure that the quality of the sample is maintained until the time of analysis. It is possible that the analysis time may be slightly longer than usual, but we will do our utmost to ensure that this is not the case.
The GESTALAB pregnancy test can be particularly useful in this time of crisis. The procedure for sending us the samples is also contact-free. If you wish to carry out GESTALAB tests, we suggest that you contact your Lactanet technician who will explain how to proceed.
Please note that all our laboratory analysis services are always available except for feed and water analysis which, for the moment, are considered non-essential.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
