User Information

The Beaumont Hospital Laboratory Users Guide provides information on the tests provided within the Department, sample types, reference ranges and expected turn around times.
 

Thrombophilia Testing Requirements

Requests for Thrombophilia testing will not be processed unless accompanied by the fully completed request form, including anticoagulant status. Clinical guidelines regarding the appropriate timing of Thrombophilia testing can be obtained in the User guide.
Informed patient consent is required for genetic testing for prothrombotic mutations. This includes mutation analysis for Factor V Leiden (including testing done for samples which have an abnormal APCR, therefore APCR requests also require consent in advance) and the Prothrombin Gene Mutation. It will not be possible to test for these mutations if patient consent has not been confirmed on the request form. There is a Patient Genetic Information Leaflet available for clinicians and patients to aid in the obtaining of patient consent.

Haematology Molecular Testing Requirements
Requests for Haematology Molecular testing will not be processed unless accompanied by the fully completed request form. Informed patient consent is required for genetic testing. It will not be possible to test for any of the genes listed on the request form if patient consent has not been confirmed on the request form. There is a Patient Genetic Information Leaflet available for clinicians and patients to aid in the obtaining of patient consent.  
Patient Information Leaflet is also available for Genetic Testing for Haematological Disorders
