Test Requirements

Samples
Generally we require a minimum of 0.5 mL of serum for each test, and only a few tests (eg PTH) are not stable by ordinary post.

Data
To provide realtime graphs, we need to identify your patient each time, so please use as many identifiers as possible on the form which accompanies the sample:

  • Forename(s) (lower case)
  • SURNAME (UPPER CASE)
  • Date of Birth
  • Hospital or Case Number
  • NHS Number (ideally)
  • Your accession number (the link to our data on the website)
  • Consultant Name (if you want the realtime graphs to be sent directly to them)
  • Diagnosis (including any suspicion of pregnancy or high results).
