Urogenital Culture


General Considerations


  1. All specimens should be transported to the laboratory as quickly as possible
  2. Do not refrigerate genital specimens
  3. Chlamydia and Neisseria gonorrhoeae are extremely fastidious and do not survive transport for culture well. Specimens for Chlamydia or Neisseria gonorrhoeae on urogenital sources should be collected in Genprobe transport tubes according to the Genprobe Specimen Collection Procedure and analyzed using the Chlamydia and/or Neisseria DNA probe procedure(s).
