Flow Cytometry Labeling

Ensure the following information is fixed to each specimen container:

  • Patient's first name and last name
  • Hospital or health care number
  • Source and type of specimen
  • Date of collection

Multiple specimens requiring individual diagnosis should be placed in separate containers to be accessioned separately.

If specimens are not labeled, or are mislabeled, a repeat specimen may have to be collected resulting in a delay in processing.  Exceptions will be made when invasive procedures are required for the specimen collection.
