Request additional sequencing

We routinely sequence all suitable samples which test positive for SARS-CoV-2 in NHS Scotland. This does not require an additional request form. Data generated from this contributes to the routine reporting of the service.

However, in some situations, there may be a clinical or public health need to request additional analysis on an individual's sample or group of samples.

To request this, complete the additional analysis request form.

Find out how to complete and submit the request form in the user manual.
