Specialised test information

For the majority of tests there is no special preparation required and you do not need to make an appointment.

However, some specialised tests including GTT, FNA, Scabies and DNA are only available at some of our collection centres and they require a booked appointment.

Please call us to make an appointment on 03 359 0900.

Your health care professional should inform you of any specific requirements for your test, for example, if you need to fast prior to the test. You can also find out more about specific tests below.
