Submitting Specimens to CDC
CDC’s Infectious Diseases Laboratories provides an online Test Directory that allows you to identify the right test for your needs. The searchable Test Directory features an up-to-date list of orderable tests and provides information on specimen requirements, contact information, test turnaround times, and other supplemental information. Access the directory here or while completing a Specimen Submission Form.
You may also download a copy [380 pgs, 2.69 MB] of the entire Test Directory.
Effective July 31st 2013, an updated test directory is available. View the major list of changes here [PDF - 32 KB].
