Onsite collection for large groups
Our COVID-19 collection team can visit onsite where there are large groups requiring testing subject to availability.
All collectors wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
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 will also receive an SMS with their result (positive or 'not detected') if they provide a mobile number. All positive results are notified to DHHS.
If the testing is surveillance testing for organisations, and so long as the employee does not have any COVID-19 symptoms, they are able to keep working and undertaking their normal daily practices. They do not have to isolate while waiting for results. Anyone with symptoms must follow the usual isolation procedures and should not be attending work.
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).
