sputum culture container
Has anyone heard of a Double-wall container for a Mycobaterium sputum culture. My ID doctor gave me a prescription for a sputum culture for a mycobaterium avium complex MIC panel. I took the sputum culture to Quest last week and they told me it had to be in a double-wall container. I called the ID doctor's office and they said they never heard of that container and my pharmacist didn't know anything about it either. Has anyone been told the same thing for this specific type of culture?
