The submission addy in the Adrenal FAQ at Ferret Central is still correct
but there have been minor changes in some other things... The new spot on
the UTK web site for this is:

They have a printable submission form a bit lower down on the same page.
And if I can pull out the specific instructions they are:

"Adrenal Panel for Ferrets. Collect baseline serum sample (0.5 ml).
Centrifuge samples as soon as possible, separate and freeze. Ship frozen
samples as for the Adrenal Panel for Dogs method above (3H). The following
hormones will be assayed: Estradiol, Androstenedione and
17-hydroxyprogesterone. The assay is run twice each month (first and third

So they're asking for a slightly larger sample (0.5 ml rather than 0.3)
and wanting it frozen now (although maybe that was implied before, I
dunno). In any case, the probably can run it either way and the
submission addy and run-dates are the same. Dr. Oliver's e-mail is the
same, but they do list a different endo lab telephone number on their
website than is in the FAQ: 865-974-5638 (phone). They ask that vets
call before submitting a sample for the first time...
