Anaerobic Bacterial Culture - ANAER


Sample Details: 1) Fluid aspirate inoculated into anaerobic transport media vials for liquid specimens(Cary-Blair, e.g. BBL™ Port-a-cul™ or Anaerobic Systems ATM); 2) Fresh tissue (>2-3 cm in diameter, minimum size); 3) Ligated loop of intestine; 4) Swab or small tissue collected and immediately placed in anaerobic transport media tube for swabs(Cary-Blair, e.g. BBL™ Port-a-cul™ or Anaerobic Systems ATM)
Cost/Fee: $45.00 /sample
Comment:

Ship overnight. Antimicrobial susceptibilities are not applicable. Please consider using the Foal Diarrhea/Septicemia Kit and Adult Equine Diarrhea Kit for equine diarrhea submissions.

Tissues (>2-3 cm in diameter, minimum size or ligated loops of bowel) are ideally held and shipped frozen with sufficient insulation and freezer packs to arrive next day and very cold; refrigerated temperatures are acceptable only for tissue samples delivered to the lab within 24 hours of collection. DO NOT Refrigerate anaerobic transport media tubes or vials

Despite labeling to the contrary, culture systems containing Amies transport media or Stuart transport media are inappropriate as transport systems for anaerobic culturing.  Swabs transported without any transport media are unsuitable for both aerobic and anaerobic culture.
