Turnaround times (TATs) are broadly in line with those published on the NVRL Pathogen Index, available on the website – 5 days for STI screening. Any delay will be due to the on-going impact of COVID-19 testing.


All other Molecular Virology services have resumed. Serology services were not affected and are as normal.
