Update to Diphtheria antibody testing service

As of 10th November 2021 we are no longer offering a Diphtheria antibody testing service.

Currently all outstanding samples received but not reported have been stored. These samples can be returned to the requesting laboratory if required. Please contact the laboratory by telephone (0121 4241705) or email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) providing sample details and a return address/contact.

Any future samples received may only be stored for a limited time period, so we would advise arranging direct transport to alternative referral laboratories if required to avoid delay.
