Home Collections

Eligibility:

DynaLIFEDx   is pleased to offer Laboratory Home Collection Service as a temporary solution for those patients who are medically housebound and physically unable to leave their residence for any appointment or activity. Laboratory home collections should not be requested for patients who can use DATS or other means of transportation. Many of our patient care centres are wheelchair accessible.

In order to ensure efficient use of resources, patients are required to meet specific eligibility requirements.

This assessment must be made by the physician.

Specimen transportation:

Homecare nurses within the area serviced by DynaLIFEDx home collections must call DynaLIFEDx home collections office at 780-451-3702 before collecting the specimens to arrange for transportation.

Tests that cannot be collected using the Laboratory Home Collections Service
