IMPORTANT NOTICE - PLEASE READ

BIOCHEMISTRY ADD-ON REQUESTS

PLEASE SEE USING PATHOLOGY EFFICIENTLY

This add-on system facilitates the adding on of tests to samples already in the laboratory. However, it takes time for laboratory staff to sort out add on requests and it should not replace appropriate test requesting on the initial request (e.g. ensure magnesium and phosphate is requested for nutrition/renal monitoring). We will vet all add-on requests and reject if inappropriate or inadequate clinical information.

Please ensure that all appropriate tests are requested on the initial request and the need to add-on tests is kept to those cases where an add-on is unavoidable.

PLEASE NOTE

We do not have the resource to support the increasing numbers of add-ons and we will withdraw this on-line function if it continues to be used inappropriately.
