Collect 40 mL of blood in green (sodium heparin) topped tubes. Gently invert several times to mix and prevent clotting. DO NOT centrifuge.
POSITIVE PATIENT IDENTIFICATION [Labeling] requires we use two (2) pieces of information [identifiers].
The standard two patient identifiers for ADx Laboratories are patient FULL NAME and DATE OF BIRTH.
Limited exception for de-identified samples would be the sample NUMBER and patient DATE OF BIRTH.
Both identifiers must match exactly on the specimen label and the requisition/order that corresponds to that specimen.
Where appropriate for multiple samples submitted together, specimen collection information (e.g. site or source, date and time of collection, etc.) must also be included on the specimen label.
Centrifuged specimens, specimens received after 30 hours of draw, frozen specimens.
Send ambient blood Priority Overnight via FedEx in a well insulated container (or in the ADx shipping kit). Specimen must be received in the laboratory within 30 hours of collection.
