We thank you for your support in ensuring the health and safety of our patients and clients, staff, physicians and communities.

All our specimen collection sites have booked appointments. Contact information for inquiries about specimen collection or inquiries about your appointment can be found below.

Horizon Health Network’s (Horizon) laboratories provide specimen collection services in several locations throughout New Brunswick. Blood collection is performed by medical laboratory professionals such as phlebotomists/medical laboratory assistants and technologists to ensure quality specimens are obtained for testing. These health care professionals will also explain all specimen collection procedures to you. Please ask your health care provider if you have any questions regarding the laboratory tests.

Horizon labs across New Brunswick employ more than 600 people and process:

  • almost 4 million specimens a year;
  • about 10,000 specimens a day;
  • about 8,000 tubes of blood a day;
  • about 1,000 urine samples a day; and
  • more than 16 million tests per year – that is more than one result every 2 seconds!

Testing is performed by medical laboratory professionals such as medical laboratory technologists, who are registered with the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) and licenced by the New Brunswick Society of Medical Laboratory Technologists (NBSMLT). Medical laboratory technologists and medical laboratory physicians such as pathologists provide information needed to screen for disease, diagnose, treat, and monitor your medical condition. Testing procedures in Horizon laboratories are performed using the latest technology, accreditation standards and guidelines to ensure quality patient care. Your laboratory results are kept strictly confidential and will be sent to your health care provider as soon as they are available.

Horizon lab staff work in a variety of specialties, some of which include:

  • Specimen Collection
  • Central Receiving & Referrals
  • Transfusion Medicine
  • Chemistry
  • Forensic Toxicology
  • Microbiology
  • Hematology
  • Pathology/Autopsy
  • Cytopathology

Request forms (requisitions) must contain the first and last name of the health care provider to be processed.
