See individual tests for specimen requirements.
Some of the samples must be centrifuged within 4 hours of collection in a precalibrated, authorized centrifuge. They must be doubly spun to insure that it is platelet poor plasma. We recommend that patients be sent to the outpatient phlebotomy lab, so the samples can be processed appropriately.
|Note: ||Ordering of these tests must be approved by a pathologist prior to being sent out for testing. Contact the hematology supervisor for information.|
The samples can be collected before pathologist approval, but they will not be sent out until the approval has been granted.
