Laboratory Update: Ova and Parasite testing will now be referred to BCCDC for testing

Date

A new laboratory update is available stating that UHNBC will no longer be performing Ova and Parasite (O&P) testing by concentration method; samples will be referred to the BCCDC in Vancouver while NH lab services investigates alternative methods. Prior to this change, UHNBC offered testing to Prince George and Quesnel patients; all other labs in NH have been referring O&P testing to the BCCDC since 2017.
