    NEWAGE Laboratories
    We are implementing a plan to reduce face-to-face interactions with the public at the laboratory to essential interactions only. As of March 16th, the laboratory will remain open to the public for sample deliveries and sample container pick-ups, however all other customer services will be handled via telephone or email. When visiting the laboratory during this extraordinary time we ask that you be aware of social distancing and attempt to maintain a 6-foot distance from staff while exchanging samples and information. We are working to maintain a clean and sanitary environment for our workers and clientele. If you have been sick or experienced any flu-like symptoms over the previous 14 days and must drop off a sample or need sample containers we ask that you call ahead. We will prepare materials for you in the cooler directly outside the front door to facilitate you dropping off or picking up supplies while minimizing any potential exposure risks.  If you have any questions please contact us at -269-639-5658, Email: info@newagelaboratories.com.

While this means we will not finish the year in person, it does not mean that school is cancelled. We will be transitioning to an online platform to service our kids for the remainder of the school year. Although this is the last thing we imagined or wanted for our kids and staff this year, we have been preparing a plan in the event distance learning became necessary. Final details and logistics are being finalized and will be presented to families in the coming weeks as we work with the Van Buren ISD and Michigan Department of Education for their approval. We will have additional information the week of April 13th. [Read More]
