For best results, ship samples overnight (if possible) at room temperature in a leak proof container.
Preferred specimen is a minimum of 1 ml of exudate/tissue in anaerobic transport medium or a sterile container. Anaerobic transport medium is recommended for best results. Antimicrobial susceptibilities cannot be performed on anaerobic isolates. Please see Anaerobic Specimen Collection Guide for more information.
To ensure a complete workup of the sample, an aerobic culture will automatically be performed with anaerobic culture requests which will incur an additional fee of $22.
