Verbal or faxed requests for additional laboratory tests are permitted by the referring institution only. Verbal requests will be followed up with a faxed authorization form to be completed by the referring insitution and faxed back to CPAL. CPAL can not accept orders directly from patients or physicians. A referring laboratory may request CPAL to do reflexive testing based on current or previous laboratory results. Requests for auto-reflexive testing should be submitted to the Laboratory Information System Coordinator, Technical Director or Administrative Director.
