COLLEGE STATION - The Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (TVMDL) has broken ground on a $53 million, 90,000-sf facility. Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2015, and projected to last approximately 18 months.

A statewide agency with four locations across Texas, TVMDL services the state's food animal, livestock, wildlife and companion animal industries.

The new building will house one of the largest veterinary diagnostic laboratories in the country, allowing the agency to continue to operate the most sophisticated diagnostic equipment available and conduct state-of-the-art testing to support veterinarians and animal owners.

"The building will allow TVMDL to maintain its accreditation from the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians and the American Association of Laboratory Accreditation. Most importantly, it will secure TVMDL's position as a key member of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network in the number one livestock state in the country," said Bruce L. Akey, TVMDL interim director.

TVMDL conducts more than 825,000 tests annually for clients in Texas, the U.S. and around the world. The College Station laboratory employs approximately 100 staff and serves as one of the two full-service facilities that comprise TVMDL.

The other full service laboratory is in Amarillo, with additional poultry diagnostic laboratories located in Center and Gonzales.
