How do I contact a lab about a case?

All cases in CVA portal list the laboratory who requested the test and where available details the person from that lab who created the Summary of Findings and the Reporting Outcomes Questionnaire.

If you'd like to contact a laboratory about a case or variant you have seen in the CVA Portal you can look up their details.

A complete listing of laboratories in the new GMS should become available in 2019.
