Once the form is submitted by the clinician, PGDx will contact the patient, send the starter kit, and request the pathology sample from the institution indicated on the TRF. Please provide name, mailing address and phone number for the patient. A starter kit will be mailed to the address provided. This kit includes the materials for saliva collection and important paperwork.
