How to Take a Test
Ordering a test from Genova Diagnostics is easy. Kits can be ordered by selecting the appropriate test using the online ordering system using your practitioner’s reference code, or by contacting the laboratory directly (0208 336 7750). The Practitioner requesting the test will have to ensure that if the samples need to be centrifuged that they let Genova Diagnostics know, so that the appropriate vials can be sent with the kit (s) Once ordered, the kits are despatched to you by first class post; you supply the samples and return them to Genova Diagnostics for processing. Results will be released to your referring practitioner who will release them to you.
Sample requirements and testing procedures
Sample requirements vary for each test and the necessary patient preparation can also vary. All test kits are supplied with patient requirements and detailed instructions on how to carry out the test. Failure to carry out the test according to the instructions may result in the sample being rejected and a delay in receiving results. Please note that Centrifuge cannot be carried out at Fountain Therapies, nor other specialist blood procedures i.e. serum or plasma, (at the current time).
Please note the following:
All samples must be returned in the containers provided by GDX
Ensure all containers are secured by sufficiently tightening lids and where necessary placing into the transport container provided
All samples must be clearly labelled with full name, date of birth, the time and date that the sample was taken – failure to do this will result in the samples being rejected.
All samples must be returned either the same day or next day delivery.
Posting and Handling
Postal requirements vary with each test and are clearly marked on the test kit instructions; however Genova strongly advise all samples are couriered or posted by next day delivery to arrive by Friday (the laboratory is closed over weekends).
