Exempt Patient Specimens, Specimen Transport Packaging

(HUMAN/ANIMAL)

Patient specimens that are not likely to contain a pathogen are classified as “Exempt human specimens” or “Exempt animal specimens”, as appropriate.  In order to classify a patient specimen as Exempt, professional judgment is required. Factors such as the known medical history, symptoms and individual circumstances of the source (human or animal), and endemic local conditions MUST be considered.
