Sample requirements and test request card


  • All requests accepted by the Laboratory for examination(s) shall be considered an agreement.
  • The Laboratory will make every effort to carry out the requested examination(s) and interpretation of the results to produce a clinical report.
  • We will contact the referring clinician if we require further information to facilitate this, or if we are unable to provide the requested service for any reason.


The laboratory handles a range of sample types which are listed with their specific requirements in this section. If testing of other sample types is required, please contact the laboratory.

Please note: The viability of samples collected in the wrong containers, stored at extreme temperatures, clotted or delayed in transit is impaired, and they are prone to failure.
