Please note that all turn around times quoted for Immunology tests refer to working days, based on a 5 day working week. All turn around times are based on the interval between the date the sample is logged into the Laboratory and the date the test result is authorised for release. Electronic results on the hospital EPR are normally available immediately after authorisation. Results to GPs via Healthlink are normally posted five hours after authorisation. Further testing (follow on tests) will delay the printed report which is normally available for dispatch the day after the result is authorised.
The Department of Immunology is part of the Laboratory Medicine Directorate in St. James’s Hospital and performs a wide range of tests (mostly on blood samples) which help in the diagnosis of a range of diseases. Patients with various clinical conditions are also treated by the medical members of staff. The department is very involved in medical education and research.
For information in regard to the test repertoire offered, sample types required, reference ranges and test turnaround times, please see the LabMed User Guide
