Conclusions

Each week, I asked Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology to collect four tubes of my blood, and distribute them, as follows:

  • One tube for in-house analysis of serum B12
  • One tube for in-house analysis of total homocysteine (tHcy)
  • One tube for send out to QHPS
  • One tube for send out to Mater Pathology

I asked Westmead to do the following:

  • Analyse all samples, in a single batch, for homocysteine
  • Send out all samples to PaLMS

I asked PaLMS to do the following:

  • Analyse all samples, in a single batch, for homocysteine
  • Send out all samples to RPAH

The process for acquiring homocysteine results id shown in the following diagram:
