The National Bee Diagnostic Centre is pleased to announce that we are now accepting samples for the 2014 season. Attached is an updated Sample Procedures Fees and Services Brochure as well as a new Submission Form. The NBDC has made some changes to the services, so please note that we have discontinued the Full Spectrum Analysis Package. This will allow clients to customize what will constitute a full spectrum analysis specific for each beekeeper. Please contact our office if you require assistance. We look forward to your submissions for the 2014 season.
