Specimen Requirements and TATs

Specimen requirements and turn around times

Although reasonable efforts are made to meet published turn-around-times, they are subject to assay performance and other external, uncontrollable factors.

Additionally, TATs are based on the initiation date of each test. For tiered-testing, this may not be the date that the specimen was received in our laboratory.


To simplify specimen collection and transport, test kits are provided to our clients upon request at no charge. Kits contain test-specific request forms and specimen collection containers, in addition to FedEx® shipping supplies for out-of-area clients.
