This examination is designed to cultivate sterile bodily fluids (other than urine, blood, BAL, or bone marrow). To the Microbiology lab, send liquids in a sterile specimen container. Provide the source of the specimen, ideally using CPOE's pre-defined specimen descriptors.
Culture Test Methods
Anaerobic organisms should be isolated and named.
No growth in the reference range
limits for tests
For cultures that produce three or more organisms, identifications won't be done.
There is no testing for antibiotic susceptibilities.
Test Details: Daily Setup, 24-Hour Analytic Time, Days
Within 24 hours, preliminary findings are reported. Positive cultures are reported in 4–10 days, depending on the source of the specimen.

Laboratory for Microbiology and Section for Microbiology Anaerobic Culture
Using sterile methods, collect fluid or tissue samples. GET AROUND GETTING POLLUTED BY NORMAL FLORA FROM THE SKIN, RESPIRATORY TRACT, OR ADDITIONAL BODY SURFACES. Determine on the request the source of the sample, the date and time of submission, the current antibiotic regimen, and the clinical analysis.
Fluid volume should be between 0.5 and 10.0 mL; do not send swabs. Eswab transfer with fluid is allowed
Minimum Volume: 0.5 to 10.0 mL of liquid; SWABS MUST NOT BE SENT. Eswab transfer with fluid is allowed
Anaerobic specimens shouldn't be kept in storage for the best recovery. Anaerobic transport samples may be kept at room temperature for 24 hours if the quick transmission is not possible.
1. Not in anaerobic transport and older than three hours
2. Swab of a specimen.
3. Samples from areas where anaerobic bacteria are a normal component of the flora, for example, the throat or sputum, rectal swabs, cervical-vaginal mucosal swabs, skin, and superficial wounds, are commonly denied.
4. The specimen is less than 1.0 ml and is not in anaerobic transport.
5. Before disposing of the original specimen, the client will be informed if an unacceptable specimen is received.
The culture of anaerobes is tested. A direct smear is included if a second specimen is provided in a sterile tube (NOT via anaerobic transport) and one is requested. A sample from the same place should be included with samples for aerobic bacterial culture as well as samples for anaerobic cultures.
