Specimen Collection Guidelines

The quality of laboratory testing is dependent on many variables, with one being the quality of the specimen submitted. Specimens should be properly collected, labeled, packaged, and transported to the laboratory in a timely manner. These steps, when correctly followed, will help maintain sample integrity and are prerequisites for accurate testing.

For detailed information on the collection, labeling, packaging, storing, and transporting of specimens, please visit the LabCorp website and read the Introduction section of the LabCorp Test Menu.
