BCCDC Public Health Laboratory Update: STIBBI Serological Specimens

Given recent changes in testing methods and lab procedures, the BCCDC Public Health Laboratory (PHL) has made processing of STIBBI serological specimens more efficient.

When drawing blood for any or all of the tests below, only 1 full* yellow/gold top tube (SST: serum separator tube) is required.
*Note: If the tube is less than 2/3 full and you are ordering 3 or more tests from the list below, an attempt should be made to collect an additional tube.

  • Syphilis
  • HIV (including pooled NAT)
  • Anti HAV
  • Anti HCV
  • Hep B – all 3 markers
  • Herpes Typing

If you are interested in current events in laboratories, articles on recent surveillance findings and outbreaks, and news from the BCCDC Public Health Laboratory, check out the Laboratory Trends Newsletter.
