    Gonorrhea Test Results times: 24-72 hours from collection

    Here is the Technical Aspects of the Gonorrhea Test:

    Specimen:

    first-void urine (patient should not have urinated for one hour prior to specimen collection)

    Volume:

    2 mL of a 20 mL to 30 mL urine collection, or entire liquid cytology vial

    Minimum Volume:

    2 mL of a 15 mL urine collection, or entire liquid cytology vial

    Container:

    Gen-Probe® APTIMA® swab or APTIMA® urine specimen transport

    Collection:

    Urine Specimen: The patient should not have urinated for at least one hour prior to specimen collection. Direct patient to provide a first-catch urine (approximately 20 to 30 mL of the initial urine stream) into a urine collection cup without any preservatives. Collection of larger volumes of urine may result in specimen dilution that may reduce test sensitivity; lesser volumes may not adequately rinse organisms into the specimen. Female patients should notcleanse the labial area prior to providing the specimen. Add urine to the APTIMA® Combo 2 urine collection device. The final volume must be between the two black lines on the device (about 2 mL).

    Storage Instructions:

    Maintain specimen at room temperature or refrigerate (2°C to 30°C).

    Causes for Rejection:

    Specimen with incorrect patient identification; unlabeled specimen; inappropriate specimen transport conditions; specimens received after prolonged delay (usually >72 hours); specimen leaked in transit; specimen in expired transport or incorrect transport device; specimens with inappropriate source for test requested; specimen with fixative or additives; APTIMA® urine transport >30 days from collection; APTIMA® urine transport with incorrect specimen volume; <15 mL urine submitted in sterile container; receipt of urine in sterile container >24 hours from collection; APTIMA® swab transport >60 days from collection; APTIMA® swab specimens with incorrect specimen volume; APTIMA® swab specimen without a swab; cleaning swab (white-shaft swab) in APTIMA® swab transport; any non-Gen-Probe® swab submitted in APTIMA® transport device; wooden-shafted swab in transport device; transport device with multiple swabs; female urethral swab; bloody or grossly mucoid specimens; bacterial swabs; specimen in ProbeTec™ UPT transport; ProbeTec™ Q-swabs
