Important notes:

Due to the high workload at the laboratory derived from the current health emergency situation, there will be priority for testing samples from hospitals. The central laboratory informs:

The results term delivery begins when the sample arrives at the laboratory, but not when the sample is collected. Therefore, the term can be extended 24 additional hours. The results delivery period can also be affected by the priority of other samples to be tested, when it is considered necessary for medical and epidemiological reasons.
