Specimen Testing

Your doctor or other health care provider may ask you to provide a specimen sample (e.g. urine, stool, semen, etc.) for testing. There are drop off locations around the province.

There are drop off locations that send the specimen to the laboratory for testing. Unless you are told otherwise, drop off your labeled specimen and the requisition to one of our specimen drop off locations.
