Helpful information

Many of our analytical services are run 24/7, but not all tests or departments operate throughout the night, weekends, or bank holidays.

Outside of routine hours, our night team provides a wide range of analytical services, although not all tests will be run as standard. No surcharges are made unless there are special arrangements for courier collections, or investigations requiring additional resources are required.

Sample packing

All samples must be packed to avoid container breakage, sample loss and contamination through leakage. Samples should be packed inside leak-proof bags or containers. Sending sharps to the laboratory is strictly prohibited. Histology samples should contain no more than 5 litres of the appropriate fixative (usually 10% neutral buffered Formalin). Clients should be aware of their responsibilities for the correct package of samples for transport receipt in the laboratory.
