Disclaimer If these un-bagged samples were to leak it could potentially contaminate the pod system resulting in a shut down for decontamination. Genital pathogens such as Neisseria gonorrhea and anaerobic organisms are particularly sensitive to delays before culturing. Care must be taken to minimise the risks to staff when transporting specimens in the Air Tube chute system or in metal transport boxes. We are getting increasing numbers of samples sent where the request form is folded up and placed in the bag with the sample. endobj In specimens such as sputum and urine (in a non-boric acid container) they can multiply to significant levels so the validity of the result may be compromised. Please contact Microbiology reception (ext 2687) if further advice is required. Transport of Specimens to the Laboratory Transport from ward and other areas within the Trust Pathology specimens are potentially infectious and hazardous. Samples from community premises (GPs) and other sources outside of the Trust do not need to be transported separately.
