Giving Samples

After you create your lab form

Bring your lab form to a participating Lab Location to give your samples. You can​ use the LifeLabs online​ appointment booking system

Because your name is not on the form, you will be asked what name you want to be called up by when it is time to give your samples.  The lab technician will use your Client Code and your date of birth to verify your identity. You will not be asked to show ID or your BC Care Card.​

Giving blood, urine and swabs

The lab technician will collect your urine and blood samples for testing. If throat and/or rectal swabs are recommended, the technician will give you a swab kit so that you can collect the swab samples yourself (self-swab). Instructions on how to self-swab are included in the kit. 

You can take the kit and self-swab at home, then bring the samples ​back to a participating Lab Location, or you can self-swab at the lab. 

If you self-swab at home, please bring your samples back ​within a few days, or you will have to wait longer for your results.

How long will it take to get results?

Once you have given all your samples at the lab, it can take up to 7 to 12 days before your results are ready.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Blood samples:
HIV, Syphilis and Hep. C

A lab technician will draw blood from your arm.

Urine sample:
Chlamydia & Gonorrhea

You will be given a plastic cup to urinate (pee) into.
