Tracheal or cloacal swab, lung, trachea
Collect specimens aseptically into individual, sterile, leak proof containers and label with permanent marker. Place swabs into dry, sterile tubes (eg. red-top tubes, no anticoagulants). Do not use bacterial transport swabs or any tubes containing agar gel or charcoal, as these are inhibitory for PCR. Keep specimens refrigerated and ship within 24 hours.
