Turnaround time is defined as the period of time from receipt of the specimen in the laboratory to release of the result. Results of routine tests drawn are generally available the following day. In some cases, owing to the complexity of the test or when the test is not performed on a daily basis, a longer turnaround time may be indicated (see individual test listings).
When verified and released, all patient laboratory results are available electronically. Patient reports are distributed via the laboratory web portal, courier, fax, or U.S. mail.
Note to Test Directory Users
The Test Directory provides an alphabetical listing of most of the tests performed at Stanford Clinical Laboratory or which may be referred to our contracted referral laboratories. Because clinical laboratory medicine is an ever evolving and changing science there may be tests that are not currently in this listing and for which you would like information or would like to order.
