Once you have placed your order and paid for your test, your Collection Kit will be dispatched within 2-5 working days depending on your location.
See the instructions for Blood Collection at How to Use Us.
The standard turn around time for our tests is a minimum of 10-14 working days from the date we receive the specimen/s at our laboratory. Please note that some of our tests are sent to overseas laboratories where the standard turn around time is 16-20 working days. We recommend that you schedule your return visit to your practitioner in accordance with these timelines.
Results are delivered to your practitioner by mail. You will only receive a copy if this has been requested on the Practitioner Request Form.
All patients are referred back to their practitioner for interpretation of results. Australian Clinical Labs provides an interpretive service to practitioners only.
You will need to wait and do the test the following day. All specimens must be collected as described in the Collection Kit instructions for each test.

It is not usually necessary to stop taking supplements during a test but this may vary with some tests. Always refer to the test kit instructions and the advice of your practitioner.
If you routinely take certain medications you should continue to do so during the test, unless instructed otherwise by your practitioner.
