Pick-up and Supplies
Specimens can be delivered to the laboratory or picked up by the
laboratory courier on a routine basis arrangement. Special urgent
pick-ups may be arranged to suit your office needs. Saturday and
Sunday service is also available.
Necessary supplies (needles, sterile containers, tubes, etc) for
our laboratory diagnostic services are provided at no charge. A
GAMC Lab representative will bring the appropriate supplies to
your office. Should you wish, the representative can demonstrate
the proper use of all materials to minimize service problems and
maximize specimen integrity.
Collection and Handling
Supplies for drawing and submitting specimens are
provided if mail specimens are delivered to the laboratory.
Attention to the listed "Requirements" will help ensure good
service. Special instructions and assistance are available in
establishing collection and handling procedures.
Red T., Lav. T., etc refer to standard vacutainer type tubes.
Separated serum may be placed in plastic vials supplied. To
ensure safe identification, specimen tubes and other containers
must be directly labeled with the patient's name, in addition to
the name on the carrying envelope or specimen bag. Slides, such
as cytology of gram stain, must have the name written on the
frosted end of the slides.
