Nucleic acid amplification (NAA)
First-void urine in Aptima® urine transport
2 mL of a 20 to 30 mL urine collection
Aptima® urine transport
The patient should not have urinated for at least one hour prior to specimen 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 20-30 mL of the initial urine stream) into a urine collection cup free of 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 not cleanse 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).
Maintain specimen at room temperature or refrigerate (2°C to 30°C). Stable at room temperature or refrigerated for 30 days.
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; specimen in ProbeTec® UPT transport; ProbeTec® Q-swabs; urine in sterile container
