Medical Laboratory

For your blood tests

Biron Laboratoire médical - the biggest medical testing laboratory in Québec.

Has your doctor prescribed blood tests for you? At Biron, your blood samples will be taken by highly qualified professionals who have extensive experience collecting samples for all types of tests.

Depending on the variety of tests prescribed, one or more tubes of blood will be collected:

  1. a lavender-capped tube containing a specific coagulant for whole blood tests, such as a complete blood count (CBC) and the glycated hemoglobin test (A1C);
  2. a blue-capped tube for coagulation tests, such as the PT/INR;
  3. a yellow-capped tube containing a serum separating gel for numerous serum tests.

Each of these tubes contains only 1 to 1.5 teaspoons of blood (5 to 7 ml). Our professionals are trained to show you each tube collected to assure you that it is properly labelled with your identification details.

Avoid line-ups. Book an appointment easily and get your test results quickly.
