Adding another Test for a Previous tested Patient

Question

I would like to order another test on a patient who was tested previously. Do I need to submit another specimen?

Answer

No. Generally, Amsterdam GenomeDx obtains enough DNA from one specimen to allow completion of a number of tests. A second specimen is not necessary, when requested within 5 years.

Question

What is the procedure for adding on further testing to a sample already at Amsterdam GenomeDx?

Answer

An additional test can be added on to a sample already at Amsterdam GenomeDx by submitting a new order form for the new test to be performed. Please reference the Amsterdam GenomeDx lab number, patient’s name and date of birth.
