How to Request Samples
To place an order or receive a quote, complete the sample request form.
The following types of data may be searched to locate discarded materials:
|Demographic||Age, Gender, Patient Type (Outpatient, Inpatient, ED)|
|Sample Collection||Sampe type (Blood, Urine, Culture, etc.), Location of Draw, Receiving Lab|
|Diagnosis Information||Visit and Lab ICD.9 code, ED chief complaint|
|Test Results||Tests ordered, results, abnormal flags, canned comments in reports only - free-text reports are not available for query.|
|Forwarded Cohorts||Crimson can receive a forwarded patient cohort from another system, as defined in your institutional review board (IRB) protocol. The cohort may query against other data elements, not in Crimson, to define the patient subset, or may exist as a cohort created for other purposes in the study. Crimson then locates samples as they become available. Use of forwarded cohorts must be clearly defined in your IRB protocol regarding use of discarded materials.|
