Biochemistry at The London Clinic

We offer a wide range of tests and investigations and our consultant biochemists are available to provide clinical advice. To contact them, please call our office on 020 7616 7755.

COMPLETION OF REQUEST FORM AND SPECIMEN ID

In order for us to provide you with a quality service, it is important that we receive a completed request form including:

  • Patient’s forename and surname
  • Date of birth
  • Hospital L number (if known)
  • Sample collection time and date
  • Type of sample and, if appropriate, anatomical site
  • Clinical information relevant to the request

Self-adhesive address labels will be accepted on request forms. However, we discourage their use on specimen bottles and containers as they are often not compatible with our technology.

We cannot accept samples for blood transfusion unless the information has been hand-written.

ADD-ON TESTING

If additional tests are required on a sample that we have already received, please contact the laboratory at the earliest opportunity. We store samples for up to 7 days but whether we are able to perform additional tests will depend on analyte stability.

CLINICAL DETAILS

This important information enables us to interpret the significance of results and ensure that we provide you with the appropriate interpretive comments and age and/ or sex-related reference ranges.

REJECTION

Specimens may not be suitable for testing if they are inadequately labelled or if they have leaked or been contaminated. In these circumstances every effort will be made to inform the requesting clinician before discarding the specimen. For ‘precious’ samples, such as CSF, analysis will be carried out at the discretion of the laboratory manager and the report annotated with a comment.

URGENT SAMPLES

We will process your request urgently when you indicate that this is appropriate.

Please advise us to expect an urgent sample by telephoning the laboratory.

Please send urgent samples in a red bag.
