In medical science, blood test outcomes are used in about 80% of diagnoses. Blood tests can reveal many medical conditions, including blood abnormalities, infectious agents, viruses, and even some cancers. Extracting blood from a vein is known as phlebotomy, and it is a part of any diagnostic procedure. The term "phlebotomist" or "phlebotomy technician" refers to a healthcare practitioner who draws blood. Acme Hospital's Phlebotomists are highly-qualified, competent, and skilled. Further, they conform to all medical conditions.
The phlebotomist will prep the puncture area with 70% alcohol before taking a blood sample, and it is then wrapped with a sterile dressing afterwards. They discard any needles and other medical supplies appropriately as blood experts following the blood extraction.
Further, when dealing with blood and needles, our phlebotomists follow preventative and sanitary procedures. This minimises infections, injuries, and the spread of blood-borne illnesses.

Usually, you can get the report of any minor diagnostic tests within 24 hours or in the evening on the day of the procedure. However, certain complicated or high-profile diagnostic tests may need time to assess the blood sample and generate the report properly. In that case, the report may take about 48 hours or 72 hours, depending on the type of test you order or the doctor prescribes.
