Let Cornerstone update your IDEXX Reference Laboratories pricing for you

Cornerstone 8.4 NEXT and higher automatically updates the IDEXX Reference Laboratories Directory of Services daily so you have access to all available diagnostics. But did you know Cornerstone can also update your laboratory pricing for you too? Here’s how to set that up—including a new option in Cornerstone 9.2 that can update your unique IDEXX Reference Laboratories invoice pricing!

After receiving your 2021 IDEXX Reference Laboratories pricing, you’ll most likely want to review and modify your reference lab invoice items accordingly.

In Cornerstone 9.2, we added the option for you to calculate your client lab fees based on your lab invoice price. To change how your default lab markup is calculated, go to Activities > Lab Work > Laboratories > Select IDEXX from the Lab List.
