Now that the BC Generations Project has reached the end of its active recruitment phase, we’re turning our attention to sample collection.
About 13,000 study members are still on our list to provide a blood and urine sample. Beginning in April, these participants can expect to receive a lab requisition form from us by email or mail.
Members can visit any LifeLabs Patient Service Centre throughout British Columbia, either on a drop-in basis or by appointment. Lab locations and hours are provided on the requisition form. Please note our collection days: Monday – Wednesday at Vancouver Island locations and Monday – Thursday for all mainland locations.
