    Hi, I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this. Sorry if its not. My brother passed away recently and his autopsy bloods were sent to Dublin. Is this normal procedure? What would they be looking for? Tia

    My condolences.

    No idea if sending to Dublin is routine. My guess is that it might depend on what tests were requested or it might just be logistics if the local lab is busy or in lockdown.

    Some tests are only done in central or external laboratories, so sending stuff away is pretty common.

    Toxicology to state lab. Standard procedure.
