General Test Information
To ensure that all samples are managed properly and that persons collecting samples have the needed information, a laboratory manual book has been developed. Download the Medlab Test Manual. [PDF File. Right Click To Download].
For samples being sent to our laboratory for analysis, a request form or worksheet needs to accompany the sample. The sample needs to be identified by date of drawing, name and date of birth on the sample. We also require patient details, tests required, relevant clinical information and who to contact with the results on the request form. Download and print the Medlab Request Form. [PDF File.

Physicians, please pick up sample request forms from our Front Desk for further information and advice.
As part of quality management it is important for the samples to arrive as safely and quickly as possible so that the integrity of the samples and a quick turnaround time can be assured.
Some samples need to be kept cool/cold on ice-packs (not directly on ice), while others need to be frozen on dry ice and transported frozen in special packaging. Therefore please contact us for information on specialised tests.
All samples should be sent to the following address:
