All samples should be clearly labeled with the patient’s name or ID# and date of birth. Individual or multiple patient samples shipped at the same time will be rejected if any ambiguity regarding patient or sample identification exists. The requisition form accompanying the sample must be completed sufficiently in order to allow definitive identification of the patient sample and the test(s) requested. The form must be signed by a physician or another person authorized by your institution to order testing and the billing information completed. Failure to fully complete these forms may delay analysis.
Samples may be shipped at room temperature by overnight Federal Express to arrive Monday through Friday.
