RE:  Revised G-1B, G-2A, G-2B, and G-THSTEPS Specimen Submission Forms

Dear Submitter,

The Laboratory Services Section has revised the G-1B, G-2A, G-2B, and G-THSTEPS Specimen Submission Forms. We hope to improve legibility in  the date of birth and date of collection by removing the shading in these boxes. In addition, we have separated the Contact/Collected By field into two separate boxes:  one for Contact and one for Collected By.

Enclosed you will find a new master copy of the revised Specimen Submission forms and a copy of the form’s instructions. The forms will be mailed in two envelopes:  one with G-2A and G-2B forms and the other with G-1B and G-THSTEPS forms. Please verify that your submitter information on the Specimen Submission forms is correct and up-to-date. If it is not, please fax a copy of the enclosed form with the corrections to (512) 458-7533. 

Discard all old DSHS Laboratory specimen submission forms that are listed below:
