Mobile Lab

 

The province of Alberta processes around 79 million lab tests per year, which places a large burden on public sample collection sites and staff. We’ve all had our own experience with lab work and the inconvenience it can bring, and Ichor wants to provide a solution to that problem. Whether you are immunocompromised, struggle with mobility issues, pregnant, doing your part to avoid crowds for COVID-19 protection, or just don’t have the time or patience, Ichor's Calgary and Edmonton mobile lab collection service can come to you to retrieve your samples and help you avoid the waiting room, and their potentially germ-filled environments. We are proud to announce that Ichor also provides collection services for the COVID-19 Antibody Serology Test in Calgary and Edmonton to help discover exposure to the virus, and antibody detection that may aid with identifying safe opportunities of returning back to work and normal activities.

Skip the waiting rooms and safeguard your health

Most of us have been there before. We go to get our blood drawn or urine collected and show up early for our appointment, only to end up waiting an inordinate amount of time before we’re finally seen. The whole time waiting shoulder-to-shoulder in a packed room with people who are suffering from ailments or diseases we can only guess at. You’ve probably thought to yourself ‘There has to be a better way’. Now there is. At Ichor, our convenient and safe mobile blood draw and urine sample collection services can keep you away from the crowded waiting rooms, and let you get back to living your life.

Reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19 by using our Calgary or Edmonton mobile lab collection services

With public health authorities telling people to stay home as much as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ichor is extremely proud to be able to help people do so with our Calgary and Edmonton mobile lab collection services. You no longer need to wait in a crowded, germ-filled room to get your blood drawn or urine collected for the important health tests you require. There are also no door handles, pens, or other common touch surfaces that can increase your likelihood of contracting COVID-19 to deal with. Simply schedule an appointment and wait for us to take care of everything, while you stay safe and secure in the comfort of your own home. By letting the lab come to you, you’ll minimize your exposure and avoid being confined to a crowded room full of strangers.

Who can benefit from your mobile lab collection service? 

While anyone can benefit from our mobile lab collection service, there are certain people who can greatly benefit from our at-home blood collection or our in-home urine collection services. This includes: 

  • Immunocompromised individuals
  • People with mobility issues 
  • People who don’t have access to a vehicle or public transit
  • Pregnant women 
  • People who want to find out if they may have been exposed to COVID-19, and may have antibodies for the virus

By being able to come to these more vulnerable individuals, Ichor can reduce their risk of contracting an infectious disease while getting their blood drawn or urine collected. Our friendly certified Medical Laboratory Assistants adhere to stringent sanitary protocols at all times, and all of them possess first aid training.

How do I get a requisition form for your mobile lab services?

There are a couple of ways you can get a requisition form for our mobile lab services. There’s the traditional method of going to your primary health care provider and receiving one after an appointment. But we have also begun developing partnerships with telemedicine providers, so you may receive one virtually as well. This allows you to complete the entire process without ever having to leave the safety and comfort of your own home. So far we have partnered with Signature Medical Centre, who is an early adopter of providing telehealth services to Calgarians. Please note if you are booking our COVID-19 serology antibody testing collection service, a doctor's requisition is already included with the service and there is no need for you to obtain one yourself.

How will I know when my test results are available?

You will have to follow up with your physician or primary health care provider in order to learn the results of your test. Our mobile lab collection service members are not privy to your health records or test results, and as such, Ichor is unable to provide any of these details to our patients. We guarantee your samples will be delivered to the lab within the required time for your samples, at which point chain of custody transfers to them. 

*Please note that due to time sensitivities of the samples, the last available booking during the day for general lab collections is 3 pm to ensure we can get the samples to the lab immediately after collection. If you book an appointment for the evenings, we will be in touch to reschedule.  
 

Remember to present your requisition form when we arrive. If you still require a requisition, Signature Medical Centre can provide you with one virtually:
