Local guidance on availability and requesting of molecular genetic and cytogenetic tests

PLEASE NOTE:

Patients MUST attend Basildon or Southend Hospital Phlebotomy Departments on a Thursday morning (before midday) to have blood taken (before sample transport to London).

Do NOT send samples directly to reference laboratories; there are health and safety regulations regarding transport of patient samples.

Requests other than routine tests (e.g. karyotyping, cystic fibrosis) MUST be discussed with Consultant Biochemist beforehand.
