Sample Submission

Laboratories & Sampling

Everything you need to know..

Below please find information related to Sample handling and submission as well as contact details for the commonly used laboratories.

Please note: These pages are intended as guidance only and their accuracy cannot be guaranteed.

1. Sample Submission

The quality of sample determines the quality of the results.

Serology specimens

When possible, all samples should be spun and separated, refrigerated, then shipped with cool packs. The use of an overnight courier service helps ensure sample quality.

Samples sent on the clot must be received within one to two days or haemolysis of the red blood cells could interfere with the ability to test.

Do not allow blood to overheat or freeze before serum extraction

Submit at least 2ml of serum per test required.

EVA semen samples

Immediately following collection, the semen should be refrigerated on crushed ice or on freezer packs for transport to the laboratory with a minimum of delay. Ideally a minimum of 10ml of semen should be submitted.
