After a referral from your doctor, the diagnostic andrology laboratory will send you a letter containing any information you need to know and a ‘toxicity tested’ container to collect your specimen in.
You will be sent an appointment to either deliver your sample to the laboratory or an appointment to use our on-site facilities depending on where you live. Important instructions on how to prepare yourself before you submit your sample will be provided.
Post Vasectomy Clinics
Diagnostic andrology clinics for post-vasectomy samples are held on Tuesdays and Fridays between 8am and 2pm.
First post-vasectomy samples may be delivered between these times without an appointment and must be done so within 4 hours of production. If a second sample is required, this will be requested by the laboratory and must be delivered to the laboratory within 45 minutes of production to allow analysis within 1 hour. Depending on geographical location the patient may be invited for an ‘on-site’ appointment.
Diagnostic andrology clinics run Monday to Friday and are by appointment only.
Appointment times to deliver samples are between 8am and 10.30am and samples must be delivered to the laboratory within 45 minutes of production to allow analysis of the sample within 1 hour.
Second samples may also be requested directly by the laboratory and will be approximately 8 weeks after the first one.
Depending on the geographical location, the patient may be invited for an ‘on-site’ appointment in our dedicated facility.
