specimen handling
Specimen Handling
  • Swab specimens should be placed in a biohazard bag and placed at 4°C
  • Transport to laboratory as soon as possible
  • Specimens may be stored at 4°C for 2 days; longer storage will require freezing at -70 °C
  • Do not store in standard freezer – keep on ice or in refrigerator
  • Avoid freeze-thaw cycles; better to keep on ice for a week than to have repeat freeze and thaw
