Please be aware SARS CoV2 PCR volumes are increasing daily and in the interest of ensuring that we meet the needs of all of our clients, please allow 36-72 hours from receipt of specimens in the lab for results to be available. This applies to all asymptomatic elective surgery specimens. It is also important for elective surgeries that specimen collection be performed 72 hours in advance of the surgery. Please check the Coronavirus testing page often for updates as RML is working hard to add additional SARS CoV2 PCR capacity. Thank you for your cooperation.
