  • Processing Sample: We are currently processing this patient’s OncoK9 test.

  • Report Available: This patient’s OncoK9 Test Report is now ready to view. There is an option to print it upon viewing. You can also opt to download the file or save it locally from your browser or PDF viewer. 

  • Sample Failed: There has been an issue with this patient’s sample and our laboratory team is unable to process it. You will receive a failure notification email which will explain why the sample failed and how to resolve the failure.

  • Failure Resolved: A member of your hospital team has resolved the sample failure and submitted a redraw for this patient. You may view the updated test form submission on the Vet Portal.
