When will my patient’s test results be ready? What is the turnaround time for test results?

While we are always optimizing the laboratory process, our current turnaround time is 14-21 calendar days from the day the sample is received at the laboratory to the time a test report is issued. Occasionally, the laboratory may determine that a sample requires additional processing or reanalysis and these exceptions will add to the sample‚Äôs turnaround time.
