Preparing the Isolate/Clinical Specimen for Shipment

Isolates – Submit suspicious isolates on an agar slant. If an agar slant is not available cut sections of growth from an agar plate and place them in a sterile test tube. Ship isolate at ambient temperature.

Clinical specimens – The shipping temperature depends on type of specimen collected. Contact the State Laboratory for additional information.
