Using the Admin - Pending Shipment to Lab Report

When tests are ordered on existing kits, or new test collection kits are received, the tests are submitted to the lab every Wednesday and assigned the Batch number for that week.

The Pending Shipment to Lab report displays kits that have been ordered but not yet sent to the lab, as well as their payment status.

Note: Tests ordered on new or existing samples are sent to the lab every Wednesday.
