The quality of the service provided depends on the level of training and experience of the staff, the availability of resources and on fostering good communication between field and laboratory based staff. In many cases the availability of training opportunities and suitable text books is restricted to staff based at well-resourced central and urban facilities. 

Despite wider access to the internet and a proliferation of on line learning opportunities, there remains a need for a general handbook to cover commonly used procedures for animal health and veterinary laboratory staff working in remote areas. This updated handbook aims to provide an easy to follow summary of the laboratory techniques and sample collection guidelines which will be of practical value for routine diagnostic work in small regional and district veterinary laboratories.
