Frequently Asked Questions

How should I label my specimens? Does BioPharma Diagnostics require patient name, gender, and birthdate? What should I specify for these fields when I am unable to provide this information?

The specimen label must include two identifiers that exactly match what is ordered in MayoLINK, or what is displayed on your requisition or shipping manifest. You can use your subject ID as one of the identifiers and a sample number as the other identifier. BioPharma Diagnostics staff will work with you on matching the identifiers and completing the required fields. In many cases, de-identified data can be used in place of PHI.
