ALTERNATE

It is preferred that the collection date and time be the same for
both CSF and Serum; however it is acceptable for them to be drawn
within 48 hours of each other.

Please note: The client will be contacted when no serum is supplied
to confirm the order. However, for Oligoclonal Banding test only,
it is acceptable to send through CSF without serum, when client
has indicated to run with serum control. CSF must be clear (CSF
collection tube #4 preferred). Blood contamination and hemolysis
may interfere with results. Submitting 4th lumbar puncture
collection tube minimizes blood contamination.
