The Cagayan Valley Integrated Agricultural Laboratory (CVIAL) is envisioned to be the center of sterling and globally competitive laboratory services for food safety, increased productivity and agripreneurship, with the mandate of harmonizing provision of laboratory services and products that ensure consumer and environment safety, productivity of soil, crops, and livestock, increased income and improved quality of life of farmers, fishermen, and other stakeholders.

The main function of CVIAL is to provide a modernized and comprehensive agri-laboratory services for quality, food safety, and increased productivity amidst Climate Change. The impacts of CVIAL’s  services are increased production, high quality products, ensured bio-safety and bio-security and increased product consumer’s acceptability. Strengthening of the CVIAL’s capabilities is therefore very essential to respond to the challenges of the time.  This also means the strengthening and enforcement of the collection of fees for services rendered to all clients. We have been mandated by the Central Office ever since to collect fees for laboratory tests and legal basis are available. Hence, all the four laboratories under CVIAL are to collect fees starting July 1, 2018.



  1. Clients will be classified according to:
  2. Students conducting undergraduate thesis – 50% discount.
  3. Masteral students will pay in full.
  4. Indigent farmers will not pay as long as they will present a certification of indigency duly signed by their barangay officials. They should present this document upon receipt of the laboratory result of their samples.
  5. Animal Raisers/Ranchers/Farm owners will pay in full, however they have the option to provide their test kits for requested tests and will not pay.
  6. Students and other clients requesting for visits and conduct of their thesis shall submit a request letter addressed to the Regional Executive Director attention to the Integrated Laboratory Division Chief. The letter should be duly signed by their Dean and adviser and submit 2 weeks before the conduct of their thesis or visits. They shall also fill up the Facility Access Form one week prior to the conduct of their requests. (see attached)
  7. Students requesting for the conduct of their undergraduate or masteral thesis shall be required to do their laboratory work and not the laboratory staff to perform for them. The laboratory staff will only supervise.
  8. They are required to bring their own laboratory gowns and other things needed in the conduct of their thesis and shall replace any glass wares and other laboratory materials that they will break or destroy.
  9. They shall follow all the Good Laboratory Practices required in the lab. (no cell phones, no drinks and food, no application of cosmetics, etc.) – see attached.
  10. Students who conducted their thesis shall give a file copy of their manuscript to CVIAL.



Pursuant to Executive Order No. 197 issued by the Office of the President dated June 13, 2000, AO # 25, series 2003, mandating the increase in fees and services by not less than 20%, the following schedule of fees and charges for diagnostic services rendered by the Animal Disease Diagnostic Reference Laboratory (formerly Philippine Animal Health Center), Bureau of Animal Industry, is hereby promulgated for the information and guidance of all Regional Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratories in the Philippines.
