Shipping Information

If shipping different tissue types, or multiple samples, clearly label each container with owner and animal ID (if applicable), date and sample/tissue type. Ship specimens overnight with an ice pack. DO NOT SHIP OVER WEEKEND OR HOLIDAY.

Additional Information
Some hospital protocols require 5 negative cultures before a patient can be transferred out of isolation, due to intermittent shedding of the organism in feces. Results for each sample are reported as they are completed. Once a positive result is confirmed, testing of further samples is discontinued.
