Provide a blood sample

Hereditary Cancer Testing requires a blood sample that can easily be collected.
If you are a resident of Ontario, Saskatchewan or British Columbia: You can visit any LifeLabs Patient Service Centre to have your blood sample collected. You must bring the same order confirmation requisition that you had signed by your healthcare provider. Our staff cannot collect a blood sample without the correct requisition signed by a healthcare provider. For your convenience and to reduce wait times we recommend booking an appointment.

Get your results & schedule a post-test counseling

Test results will take 6 weeks. Test results will be sent directly to your physician for their review and follow-up discussion with you. We recommend that you schedule an appointment with your physician after your blood sample is collected to review the results. Counseling with a genetic counselor from our genetic team can also be arranged following receipt of results.
