Timeline for Results Availability

The time required to complete the diagnostic tests listed below are general guidelines but may vary depending on the case.  For example, bacterial culture, bacteria identification, and antibiotic sensitivity tests would all take longer to perform on a slow-growing bacteria than on a more typical bacteria that grows within 24 to 48 hours.  Estimated times given below are from the date of sample submission to the diagnostic lab.
