We offer various ambulatory sampling services.
Since 4/2014, the Tykslab Turku City Hospital ambulatory sampling has focused on serving patients primarily by appointment. Patients with appointments do not need to register when arriving, but they need to wait to be invited to sampling. If you have trouble scheduling an appointment, it is possible to queue for blood sampling on 1 pm to 2 pm.
Emergency patients and patients who are picking up sampling supplies or bringing samples taken at home are also served by queueing.
You need a doctor's referral to be admitted.
You will receive instructions for preparing for sampling in your own care unit. Preparation instructions can also be found from the info bank (mostly in Finnish)
The results of the tests are sent directly to the doctors who requested them and you can enquire the results in your own care unit.
Our selection of samplings includes:
Urine and faeces samples
Urea breath test (Pt-Hepy-R)
Spirometry or breathing function test
Microbiological samples (MRSA & VRE)
Supervised urine drug screen
