Chronic Wasting Disease



Thank you for participating in the Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) surveillance program in Utah. Hunter participation is vital to the success of our monitoring program. All samples that were collected from hunter-harvested wildlife were submitted to the Utah State University Diagnostic Laboratory for testing. The tests that were performed have a typical accuracy rate above 90%, but no testing process can provide 100% accuracy. Therefore, submitted samples are only intended to screen for CWD infection. The sensitivity and accuracy of the tests, or ability to detect CWD, can vary depending on the quality of the sample and the stage of infection. Therefore, a result of “Not Detected” does not exclude the animal from being infected, it only indicates that the infection was not found.
Please enter the first three digits of your last name (no apostrophes) and the submission number found on the upper right corner of your collection form and click on the search button to indicate that you have read and understand the limitation of the laboratory test results.
