The MIT Medical Laboratory is committed to accurately and efficiently providing test results for our patients. Our specialties include microbiology, hematology, chemistry, urinalysis, serology, phlebotomy, and point-of-care testing.
As of October 28, 2020, the laboratory will no longer be able to fill lab orders issued by clinicians outside of MIT Medical. If your clinician is outside MIT Medical, we recommend that you use their recommended lab or a private laboratory such as Quest Diagnostics or LabCorp.
Patients who need a semen analysis or therapeutic phlebotomy must call for an appointment. For other tests your clinician has ordered, just stop by during the hours we are open.
Most test results are available within 24 to 48 hours. To protect patient confidentiality, we report test results directly to your clinician. Please contact your provider for the results or with any other questions.
For patients enrolled in the MIT Traditional, MIT Choice, MIT Student, and MIT Affiliate Health Plans, laboratory services are ordered by your primary care provider or another provider at MIT Medical. We are unable to take lab orders from clinicians outside of MIT Medical.
For lipid panels, patients should fast for a minimum of nine hours, taking nothing more than small amounts of water. Ask your physician about taking prescribed medications.
