URINE CULTURE (ONTARIO)

April 6 2024
***UPDATE ON TEST TURN AROUND TIME*** We have implemented a new Automation system for our Microbiology testing, specifically for urine cultures and MRSA/VRE. We have also consolidated all Microbiology testing at one site (IRL). As a result, you may see some delays as we transition our volumes to the new site and the new system.
