For urine specimens, the patient should not have urinated for at least one (1) hour prior to specimen collection

  
Male urethral swab
  
  1. Insert the specimen collection swab (blue-shaft swab in the package with the green printing) 2 to 4 cm into the urethra.
  2. Gently rotate the swab clockwise for two to three seconds in the urethra to ensure adequate sampling.
  3. Withdraw the swab carefully.
  4. Remove the cap from the swab specimen transport tube and immediately place the specimen collection swab into the specimen transport tube.
  5. Carefully break the swab shaft at the scoreline; use care to avoid splashing of contents.
  6. Recap the swab specimen transport tube tightly.

 

  

Aptima Unisex swab specimen collection kit (LabCorp)

 

  
Urine, first-void
  
  

The patient should not have urinated for at least one hour prior to specimen collection.

Direct patient to provide a first-catch urine (approximately 20 mL to 30 mL of the initial urine stream) into a urine collection cup free of any preservatives. Collection of larger volumes of urine may result in specimen dilution that may reduce test sensitivity; lesser volumes may not adequately rinse organisms into the specimen.

  
  1. Add urine to the Aptima Urine specimen collection kit (LabCorp) transport tube until the level falls between the two black lines on the device (about 2 mL).
  2. Cap tightly
  3. Label with patient name and 2nd unique identifier.
