Sample Handling Protocol:

The ODA Animal Health Lab is now accepting the Biomed Transit Tubes and InPouches for individual and pooled PCR official testing. Please use one of the following sample handling methods below: 

Method 1: After sample collection, ship samples in transit tube or InPouch overnight so as to arrive at the lab within 48hrs.
Do not ship on ice - ship at room temperature. 

Method 2: If you are not able to ship samples to lab within 48 hours (e.g. due to a holiday, weekends, or weather delays), then freeze samples within 48 hours after collection. Frozen samples can be stored at 20ºC. When ready to ship, ship samples overnight on ice in a styrofoam container so they can arrive at the lab below 20ºC.

Incubation is no longer required prior to shipping for either the transit tube or InPouch. Incubated samples (24-48 hours at 37ºC) will still be eligible for official testing but is no longer necessary for official testing requirements.

Samples received outside these two methods can still be run as a diagnostic result only and are not considered an official test. Results will not be valid for movement, sale or other regulatory purposes. Remember, do not use expired pouches or transit tubes as they may be rejected by the lab and cannot be used for official testing requirements. We also offer use of our FedEx shipping account to help cut costs. This account should only be used for shipping trich samples to our lab, contact lab: 503-986-4686 for account information.
