• Chlamydia/GC – Swab Specimen Collection
    Sep 17, 2012

    With the advent of highly sensitive technology for Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) testing, as well as the ability to detect minimal amounts of non-viable Chlamydia nucleic acid (NA), sample cross-contamination for this test has become a concern. Contamination and consequent false positive results can occur due to inappropriate collection.  To address this, Gamma-Dynacare is reminding everyone about proper collection techniques.  For more information, please see the Client Notice below.

  • Winnipeg Laboratory Consolidation
    Sep 12, 2012

    We are pleased to inform you that, effective September 24, 2012, Gamma-Dynacare Medical Laboratories will be relocating our Winnipeg testing laboratory facility and offices from our current location in the Boyd Building at 212-388 Portage Avenue (the former Central Medical Laboratories premises) to a new, state-of-the- art facility at 100-830 King Edward Street.   We will continue to operate a Patient Services Centre for specimen collection in Suite 212 of the Boyd Building. The operations of the former Trainor Medical Laboratory will be consolidated into the new facility in November of 2012.

    At 30,000 square feet, our new laboratory facility on King Edward Street is much larger than our existing space, providing additional capacity to handle increasing volumes.  In addition, we took this opportunity to completely renovate the space at King Edward to create a more efficient and effective laboratory environment, enabling us to better serve healthcare providers and their patients.

    Please be advised of the following contact details for the facility, as of September 24, 2012:

    Main Laboratory
    100-830 King Edward Street, Winnipeg, MB R3H 0P4

    NEW - Customer Service telephone (for patient results): Toll Free  1-855-944-7200
