The requesting physician should note the initials, the patient's name or a unique reference of the patient on all samples. The lab uses a unique barcode system for every application.
- These barcode sheets can be ordered from the order list.
- Use 1 barcode sheet per application form, where one barcode is affixed to the application form and the other barcodes on the vials taken. The remaining barcodes are put in the plastic bag together with the application form and the vials.
If the collection date is different from the prescription date, both should be noted on the application form.
