Supply Orders

Due to disruptions in the global supply chain, we have been experiencing atypical shortages and backorders of many of our regularly used phlebotomy supplies. Because of these shortages, your order may not be filled to the level requested.

As we manage our inventory, we will do our best to make sure you have the supplies you need. In the event a critical item is unavailable, please review this page for updates. Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.

For acceptable specimen container alternatives, please search the requested test (i.e. Comprehensive Metabolic Panel) in the NorDx test catalog. Tube alternatives will be listed in the “Preferred Container” and/or “Acceptable Alternative Container” sections. View the NorDx Test Catalog
