In order to enhance our added test service, QML Pathology offers both fax and online options for ordering additional tests to the original ones outlined on the patient's request form. These options offer a time efficient means to deal with your patient follow-up.
It is important to note that due to the time-critical nature of testing and limits to storage capabilities, most samples are only stored for seven days after completion of testing; although some specimens do not comply with this timeline. Serological testing may be stored for extended periods to assist assessment of seroconversion, however the instability of some analytes may mean a sample that is several days old will be unsuitable for analysis. For any queries in regards to this please contact your local laboratory.
