FAQs Ordering Tests Requesting a Test
What does the NY State Approval status mean, and can I order the test?
Subsection 58-1.10(g) of Part 58 of Title 10 (Health) of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York states that all technical procedures employed in a laboratory shall be of proven reliability and generally accepted by leading authorities in the specialties of laboratory medicine and/or approved by the Department.
A NYS permit only applies to lab testing on residents of NYS. All other states are approved by Mayo’s rigorous test verification process and accreditation under the College of American Pathologists.
