Analysis Turnaround Time

Times stated are from receipt in the laboratory to production of report visible to users on the Pathology computer. Time from patient to laboratory is beyond our control, but will have significant effect on the overall turnaround time. In the event of unforeseen circumstances, e.g. analyser or I.T. failure, reporting may be delayed.

Assays that are referred to regional or supra-regional laboratories take considerably longer. Please contact the laboratory in case of difficulty.

We regularly audit the turnaround times of requests which includes the time from receipt in the laboratory to the time results are made available. Average turn-around times can be generated for specific tests upon request to the laboratory.
