Do not use Bacterial Transport Media or Transport swabs containing agar or charcoal because they may have an inhibitory effect on the PCR assay.  Please send swabs in a sterile tube with a few drops of saline, just enough to keep swabs moist.  When sending tissues, please bag tissues separately and mark bags with a permanent marker, not stickers or tape.
