What Are The Tests For?
CPW biologists are working to improve the knowledge of infection rates around the state.
Tests are only intended to screen for evidence of chronic wasting disease (CWD) infection.
There are no reports of CWD infection in humans, but public health officials recommend that people avoid eating CWD-infected animals.
How the Testing Works
Timely submission of your sample is critical
Accuracy can vary depending on the stage of the infection in the animal
Test accuracy rates are more than 90%, no testing process can assure 100% accuracy for CWD diagnosis
- Please plan to allow at least 3-4 weeks (15-20 business days) from the date a head is submitted for results to become available. See "When Can I Expect My Results" on the Submission page for more details.
