Onsite collection for large groups
Our COVID-19 collection team can visit onsite where there are large groups requiring testing.

All collectors wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).

Results
Results will be made available to the employer through our online Results program – Sonic Dx Results. You will be given a username and password to check results. Patients who are negative can also receive an SMS with their negative result if they provide a mobile number. All positive results are phoned by our Medical Microbiologists and DHHS is informed.

Important note:
All patients requiring testing should return to isolation after they have been swabbed until they receive their result AND accompanying medical advice from the referring doctor or DHHS about continued isolation or release from isolation.

NATA accredited laboratories
As with all Melbourne Pathology testing, our laboratories are accredited to the highest international standards by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) and the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA).
