How long will lab results take?

Different tests take different periods of time to report, but in general, you should have your results within 1-2 weeks after visiting the lab. 

Turnaround times for test results vary depending on the following: 

  • Date/time the specimen is provided at the Quest Patient Service Center.
  • Date/time the specimen is processed by the Quest testing lab.
  • Set up days for the tests (not all tests are run every day)
  • If a test is positive and it has a reflex test

Please note this doesn't refer to DNA results. DNA results take about 6-8 weeks.
