Submit fluid samples (desired: > or = 50 mL when possible) or CSF (desired: 2-3 mL) in a screw capped container or tube. Note: Smaller volumes of fluid samples may be accepted depending on source and cellularity of the specimen. Please contact the laboratory if the appropriateness of source or volume of sample is in question.
