AHL Guelph specimen reception update

1. Since the spring, AHL Guelph Specimen Reception has been closed on Sundays and holidays.  A new automatic door was installed in June and since then, submission drop offs are available from 7AM to 8PM every day.  Beginning September 6th (and including the holiday Monday September 7th), AHL Guelph Specimen Reception will be staffed and open for receiving from 9AM to 5PM on Sundays and statutory holidays (excluding Christmas Day).  Regular hours remain the same: 8AM to 6PM Monday to Friday and 9AM to 5PM Saturday.

2. As we move into the new “normal”, we are still occasionally experiencing Purolator courier delays.  We have no control over these delays, and express courier service is also not guaranteed.  When you can, please make sure you are shipping early in the week with appropriate cold chain provisions so that an extra day in transit will not impact the quality of submissions.

Stay safe!
