Sampling time is every 8-10 days at ambulance 101. Patients must have accompanying documentation, ie referral from DZ, family medicine outpatient, Institute for the Protection of Women's and Maternity Welfare, General Hospital, or UKCS and approval if it is from another canton, as well as a health booklet. Patients who do not have the proper documentation, cost themselves the cost of the analysis, according to the current price list. The release of the reports is from 9am to 10am the following day. Samples for clinical patients are received from 0 to 24 h, as well as emergency cases, which are completed in an emergency procedure. Patients/pregnant women can sleep before the blood sampling.
