The advertised standard saliva hormone sample test wait-time is 10 working days although it is often quicker. There are variables which (can) affect that time you may want to consider, they are:
- Re-testing is required only when the test results appear outside of the established “normal range”.
- Test time commences the moment your sample reaches the laboratory.
- Test time information is approximate, is subject to change and includes working days only.

What can people expect using TestoChecker?
Our role at TestoChecker is to ensure our clients get what they need, on time. Read on for more detail about how we go about “managing” pathology requests, to ensure our clients get what they pay for, i.e. top level Australian based accredited pathology services, all without leaving their home.
We aim to make the journey seamless, from ordering, through the short (see above) wait period,. and finally the timely delivery of your hormone test results.
Our job isn’t done until you have received those results. Prior to sending them to you, we perform checks to ensure you have results which are of the standard our testing laboratories are renowned for.
All laboratories make the odd human administrative error, and so do we, but it’s our job to find and fix any error made by a lab, and we fix them fast, not that we need to often mind you.
So what are examples of the things we look for?
In addition to monitoring hormone testing wait-time, we check that all hormone tests requested by our valued Clients have been included in the results. That the formatting of the results has no identifiable omissions (i.e. everything is there). And that’s not all.
So let the lab focus on testing, we’ll keep you updated, while you get on with life meantime.
