Sample collection (laboratory)

In a biomedical analysis laboratory, professionals (medical technologists, certified laboratory technicians, cytologists) perform analyses and examinations in the field of medical biology (biochemistry, hematology, blood bank, microbiology, pathology, cytology) based on samples. These analyses are available for both outpatients and inpatients and are performed according to the requests of the attending physician. They aim to establish and clarify diagnoses as well as to identify appropriate treatments, if necessary.

For the admitted person, the samples are taken on the care units according to what the physicians have prescribed. The specimens are then sent to the laboratory.

Outpatients must go to a collection center with the form provided by the attending physician so that the necessary specimens can be taken.

Collection centers

Before going to a collection center, it is important to check the form provided by the physician to ensure that the tests requested do not require a prior appointment. If you do, you will need to call the number on the form.

The person must go with the doctor's request to one of the various collection centers so that the staff (medical technologist or nursing assistant) can collect the necessary specimens.

  • During collection hours, the first come, first served basis.
  • Both your health insurance card and hospital card are required.
  • Once registered, you will be called and a staff member will greet you, seat you in a specimen collection chair and perform the necessary specimens for the tests requested by the physician.
  • For urine and stool samples, the information will be given to you by your doctor.
