Conjunctival swab, deep nasal swab, lung, milk, synovial fluid, transtracheal wash, BAL
Collect specimens aseptically into individual, sterile, leak proof containers and label with permanent marker. Place swabs into sterile tubes and add a few drops of saline. Do not use bacterial transport swabs or any tubes containing agar gel or charcoal, as these are inhibitory for PCR. Freeze lung and refrigerate other specimens.
