Test Specimen


  • Container/Tube: Serum gel (red top tube is not acceptable)

Collection Instructions:

  1. Avoid exposure of specimen to atmosphere to prevent environmental contamination of the sample.

  2. Centrifuge and send entire specimen in original collection tube.

  3. Do not aliquot or open tube. The serum can be decanted into a suitable container that is free of interfering levels of (1-3)-B-D-glucan; however, the use of pour-off tubes is not recommended due to the potential for environmental contamination of the sample that can lead to false positive results.  Serum samples which are transferred to sterile, leak-proof containers should be handled in a sterile cabinet.  Interpret results from samples provided in pour-off tubes with caution.
