- Specimen Chain-of-Custody Protocol
Chain-of-custody is a legal protocol describing the documentation of specimen transfer from the time of collection until final disposition.
The chain-of-custody protocol is a clerical and custodial service offered by the laboratory to document specimen transfer and provide for extended specimen storage. A written record of specimen transfer, from patient, to analyst, to storage and disposal, is maintained on all specimens covered by chain-of-custody. All drug tests, blood alcohol, or any other tests that have medicolegal significance should be accompanied by a chain-of-custody.
Causes for Rejection
Quantity not sufficient for analysis; improper specimen (serum, plasma, blood); incomplete chain-of-custody documentation; incomplete specimen identification; improper or missing tamper-evident seals
