Abstract:

This section presents tables that summarize and document the salient features of the specimen collection and transport. The most important aspects of microbiological testing are collection of the right specimen and transport of the specimen to the testing site in a manner that ensures the reliability of the diagnostic procedure (e.g., culture, microscopy, and antigen or antibody tests). Table 3.1 provides a list of bacteriology along with collection and transport guidelines. Specimen type includes abscess, blood, bone marrow aspirate and burn. Table 3.2 includes specimen collection and transport guidelines for infrequently encountered bacteria. Table 3.3 presents guidelines for collection of specimens for anaerobic culture. The section also talks about virology and general specimen guidelines. Table 3.4 focuses on mycology and collection and transport guidelines. Table 3.5 is on parasitology. Table 3.6 provides guidelines for processing stool specimens for parasites. Table 3.7 provides a list of agents of bioterrorism along with specimen guidelines.
