Dear Laboratory Customer:

Effective September 1, 2010, the DSHS Laboratory will no longer offer Triple Screen testing. 
Triple Screen test requests received by the DSHS Laboratory from September 1, 2010 forward will be returned to the provider.

Providers are encouraged to identify a commercial reference laboratory that can offer this testing service.  For providers that are contracted with Title V DSHS programs, please contact your program representative for further detail regarding testing and funding options.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our customers, however, due to issues related to funding restrictions and decreasing Triple Screen testing volumes, we are unable to continue supporting this service.

Thank you for your cooperation. 

Sincerely,

Susan U. Neill, Ph.D., MBA
Director, Laboratory Services Section
