Test Request Forms
We have three different test request forms. If you are unsure which is the correct for to use, please contact the laboratory.
Be as complete as possible when filling out these forms. If your patient is within the Duke system, all demographics and billing
information can be excluded. If you are a physician outside of the DUHS system, the form you need may not
be available online. Please contact the laboratory for additional information.
General Test Requisition Form. This is for DUHS internal clients only.
Hematopathology Combined Requisition Form (also for DUHS Clients Only).
Medical Genetics Requisition Form. This for is for external (Non-DUHS) physicians.
For some tests, patient informed consent is required. Informed consent requirements are noted on the test requisition forms. Informed consent
is the responsibility of the ordering physician. No testing will be performed without a physician of record who is able to consent their patient.
In addition, results are sent to the ordering physician, not to the patient directly. This gives the ordering physician an opportunity to explain the results of testing.
If you need help with informed consent or with the interpretation of test results, please contact the laboratory.
