PDF Report Indicates whether the report includes an additional document with charts, images or other enriched information


Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.

Monday through Friday

Rush (same day as receipt) interpretation is also available on Saturday and holidays for clinically emergent cases (eg, acute renal failure, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, acute kidney allograft dysfunction) but requires advanced notification and approval by a Mayo renal pathologist.

Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.

Routine cases: 1 working day/2 to 10 days for electron microscopy. Rush (same day as receipt) interpretation requires advance notification and approval by a Mayo renal pathologist.

Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result

4 working days (from receipt) for the light microscopy and immunofluorescence report. Electron microscopy report typically follows in 2 to 5 working days.

Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test
