In brief: Only at select labs

The two major laboratory companies--quest and labcorp have few locations in the country to run maternity testing requests.
The blood samples can be drawn from vuirtually any local laboratory location, but then the samples are sent to the specific lab. So, as far as your testing need is concerned, it can be drawn anywhere and you will get the result--this u don't even need a doctor order! good luck.

In brief: No

The complex nature of some testing requires that a certain number be run in a testing location to justify keeping the materials on hand and the costs of doing the costly validation tests on a regular basis.
many sites can draw the test , but it is normal to send it to a central location to be run with other samples.
