3 - 7 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
1.1 mL (Note: This volume does not allow for repeat testing.)
Ship in a screw-cap polypropylene frozen transport tube or centrifuged PPT™ tubes.
Collect specimen in two lavender-top (EDTA), PPT™, or yellow-top (ACD-A) tubes. Centrifuge specimen within six hours of collection when freshly drawn at 15°C to 30°C. If drawn in EDTA or ACD, the plasma must be transferred to a screw-cap polypropylene transport tube and frozen. If refrigerated, specimen may be held for 24 hours prior to centrifugation. Plasma specimens may be stored at -20°C for 60 days. If longer storage is required, plasma specimens must be stored at -70°C or lower. Ship frozen on dry ice. To avoid delays in turnaround time when requesting multiple tests on frozen samples, please submit separate frozen specimens for each test requested.
Freeze; stable for long-term storage. Stable at room temperature for six hours or one day after centrifugation. Stable refrigerated for 24 hours or five days after centrifugation.
Hemolysis; plasma other than EDTA or ACD-A; quantity not sufficient for analysis
