How can you ensure speedy order processing?

With this checklist, we provide you with important points to ensure smooth order processing and prompt receipt of the test results:

  • Clearly label samples: Label each specimen with the patient's full name, date of birth and collection date. Without the date of collection, we cannot ensure that the samples are suitable for the desired test.
    Samples that are not labelled can only be processed with reservations.
  • Fill in the IGL order form in block letters: Complete each section of the IGL order form fully and clearly. Sign the order form in all the spaces provided. If you wish to have the DNA Adducts or the SODase Activity & Gene Examination carried out, please also complete and sign the consent form on the second page of the order form in accordance with the Genetic Diagnostics Act (GenDG). Examinations may be delayed or cancelled due to missing or incomplete information. You can find more information on filling out the order form here.
  • Have your patient sign the order form and, if applicable, the consent form according to the GenDG. In the case of minors, please state the name and date of birth of a legal representative and have them sign the order form. If the required signatures are missing, the sending of the test results may be delayed.
  • Pack the patient's samples in a sample bag and enclose the order form. Pack only one patient's material in a sample bag. Make sure that you have included all the samples needed for the desired tests in sufficient quantity with the order. For more information on sample quantity, click here.
  • Always send the samples on the same day and, when selecting the shipping method, take into account that the samples will arrive at the laboratory within two to three days. You can find more information about shipping your order here.
