I once dropped off my 24hr collection and had my blood drawn on a Sat. It was 
discovered after I left that the prescription I left with the lab was lost, 
therefore, they could not process it.  They left me a message but I did not 
get it until after they closed.  I thought for sure I would have to redo the 
test.  I called my dr on Monday and they faxed a prescription over to the 
lab.  They kept the collection on ice over the weekend and with the fax 
prescription they were able to do the test two days later.
