Whole blood: Normal phlebotomy procedure. Specimen stability is
crucial. Store and ship ambient immediately. Do not freeze. `<
Saliva: Rinse mouth, spit into collection tube until liquid phase
reaches mark, seal with cap, replace funnel with small cap. See
package insert. Store and ship ambient. Do not freeze. The oragene
reagent is released from the cap. The reagent stabilizes/releases DNA
from saliva. For Genetic Testing, original tube required. Aliquots
for other testing from original tube are permitted, if performed
without cross contamination of samples and using sterile techniques.
Rinse mouth prior to spitting.
