High risk/danger of infection specimens

It is the responsibility of the requesting clinician to indicate on the REQUEST FORM AND SPECIMEN if the patient is known or suspected to be within a "High Risk/Danger of Infection" category (eg HIV, TB, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C), to facilitate appropriate handling.

Frozen sections (including specimens for immunofluoresence) will NOT be carried out on high risk specimens.
