  • Patients who have already had their blood drawn at home
  • The glycemic and insulinemic curves have the right of precedence in the register, but have the time limit of acceptance: until 9.30 am.
  • Collections of patients on oral anticoagulant therapy are carried out from Monday to Friday. The booking of these withdrawals is managed by the Operating Unit of Medicine, at the administrative desks (second floor, staircase B).

  • In the Collection Room it is possible to perform cervical swab for the search for HPV which allows to exclude or confirm the presence of one or more of the 14 most statistically frequent high-risk virus genotypes. The report of this test can be available to the user 60 minutes after arrival at the laboratory. The test is provided for a fee, therefore it does not require presentation of the test by the general practitioner or gynaecologist. Starting from this test, which immediately indicates the presence of the virus, a "tailor-made" outpatient path can be defined for the patient, indicating what, if necessary, the next diagnostic steps are, in a targeted way, without wasting time or additional services.
