Answers to the most frequently asked questions.
Your pre-testing instructions will depend on the test you’re having, but the most important thing you’ll need to do is drink plenty of water - unless your GP has given you a reason not to.

The medical specialists at QML Pathology have compiled a series of Patient Information Brochures to help you understand some of the more common medical conditions and their testing implications.
Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing
A simple and highly accurate blood test, NIPT screens for common chromosomal abnormalities from as early as the 10th week of pregnancy, for both singleton and twin pregnancies.

QML Pathology offers a limited range of self-requested pathology. In certain circumstances, patients can request a pathology test without the authorisation of a doctor or registered practitioner.
