Sending samples to the laboratory
- Once the specimens have been collected and labelled they must be sent to the laboratory immediately.
- Blood tubes should be enclosed in a plastic bag to prevent spillage of blood if any leakage or damage to the tube occurs.
- Only tubes from a single patient can be sent in one bag, samples from several patients in a single bag will not be accepted.
