AHL now offers a "specimen receipt confirmation" email or fax. When your submission is initially entered into our LIM system, it generates an automatic response that is emailed and/or faxed to you indicating the data and testing that has been entered on the case as well as the expected turnaround time. Please email us at if you would like this feature activated. Once activated, if you should happen to have questions or concerns about data entry or there are changes needed - please email with the case number and concern and we will investigate.
