3. Transfer 2 mL of urine into the APTIMA urine specimen transport tube using the disposable pipette provided within 24 hours of collection. The correct volume of urine has been added when the fluid level is between the black fill lines on the APTIMA urine transport tube.

 

Specimen Type: Urine (following prostatic massage)

Container/Tube: APTIMA Urine Specimen Transport Tube (T582)

Specimen Volume: 15-20 mL

Collection Instructions:

1. Patient should not have urinated for at least 1 hour prior to specimen collection.

2. Patient should void a small amount of urine prior to prostatic massage. Pre-massage urine can be discarded or submitted for other testing as applicable.

3. Patient then ceases voiding and a prostatic massage is performed by the urologist or other health care professional.

Specimen Type: Urethra

Container/Tube: APTIMA Collection Unisex Swab (T583)

Specimen Volume: Swab

Collection Instructions:

1. Patient should not have urinated for at least 1 hour prior to collection.

2. With a rotating movement, insert swab (blue shaft) 2 to 4 cm into urethra.

3. Once inserted, rotate swab gently at least 1 full rotation using sufficient pressure to ensure swab comes into contact with all urethral surfaces. Allow swab to remain inserted for 2 to 3 seconds.

4. Place swab in the APTIMA transport tube provided in collection kit. Snap off swab at score line so swab fits into closed tube.

5. Cap tube securely, and label tube with patient's entire name, and date and time of collection.
