Lab requisition will indicate if the requested test is a Standard Test or a Specialty Test.
Standard blood tests
Take the lab requisition to any Quest Diagnostic draw center.
All centers accept walk-ins or you can make an appointment. Select ‘Routine Lab Tests” and select your time. Quest Diagnostics will accept your lab order and will not charge you any draw fees as they are included at the time of checkout.
Specialty blood tests
Specialty tests require a sample collection kit which is mailed to you upon receipt of your order. The collection kit includes all of the necessary blood draw tubes, instructions, lab order and a pre-paid return shipping label. Please note that Quest Diagnostics will not accept any specialty test kits.
Specialty Tests draw locations:
– Any Lab Test Now is a national blood draw service with locations in many cities. They accept and process specialty test collection kits for a nominal service fee.
– Contact your county health department as most offer phlebotomy services and can collect and prepare the sample for shipment. A nominal service fee may be charged.
– Take the specialty collection kit to your health care provider. Please note that most of the samples will need to be centrifuged prior to shipment, verify that the clinic can draw, process, and pack the specimen for you.
