Urgent STEC Testing

Testing for STEC-HUS is performed in the national reference laboratory in Colindale. 

STEC testing is paid for by NHS England as part of the diagnostic and follow-up pathways in patients referred to the national aHUS service for consideration of Eculizumab and can now be requested via the NRCTC using the form above.

Please note that a STEC diagnosis might be missed if a sample is taken late – do send samples early in the diagnostic pathway.
