Clinical Pathology


Test Turnaround Times

AHDC Clients:  We strive to provide you with the most accurate results in a timely fashion.  Turnaround times for routine tests such as CBCs, routine chemistry tests and panels, urinalyses, some immunology tests and cytologies is generally 24 hours from sample receipt in the laboratory, though we do our best to have results to you sooner if feasible. However, samples received after 3:30 pm on Friday (insufficient time to process the sample for analysis) or Saturday (no clinical pathologist on routine duty) will usually be reported out on Monday.

CUHA Staff and Students: There is no guarantee of same day results for specimens submitted after 4:00 p.m. (3:00 p.m. for cytologies and 3:30 p.m. for crossmatches) on weekdays (unless the sample is STATed for an additional fee).
