Clinicians need only complete any extra pieces of information that the requesting laboratory requires. Duplication of clinical information is not required; however the combination of both forms must be adequate for the receiving laboratory.
Oncology and hereditary cancer test requests must be referred through a Clinical Genetics Service, as well as any sendaway tests for Marfan syndrome ( FBN1 ). It is helpful for clinicians to detail appropriate justification for requests not listed on the current sendaway list (e.g. a different laboratory or an alternative testing method or panel).
