IMPORTANT :  Portneuf and Québec

Due to the COVID-19 situation that continues to evolve, as of Monday, January 17, 2022, and until further notice, we will be taking only certain types of lab work specimens at our Portneuf and Quebec City lab test centres. The samples that we will still be collecting are as follows:

  • INR (International Normalized Ratio) monitoring
  • Anticoagulant therapy follow-up
  • Medication dosage
  • Urgent tests as specified in the prescription

Please note that we will respect all appointments that had already been scheduled. You can make an appointment for a lab test only by using or by calling 418-628-6808 in Quebec City region, and 418-337-4611, ext. 2599, in the Portneuf area.
