RE:  Revised G-THSTEPS Specimen Submission Form

Dear Submitter,

The Laboratory Services Section has revised the G-THSTEPS Specimen Submission Form.  We have added gonorrhea/chlamydia (GC/CT) testing and removed hemoglobin electrophoresis testing.

Enclosed you will find a new master copy of the revised Specimen Submission form and a copy of the form’s instructions.  Please verify that your submitter information on the Specimen Submission form is correct and up-to-date.  If it is not, please fax a copy of the enclosed form with the corrections to (512) 776-7533.

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

OLD FORM                             Comments

G-THSTEPS (AUG 2011)        - Replaced with G-THSTEPS (AUG 2012)

The new specimen submission form is:

NEW FORM                            Comments

Sincerely,

Grace Kubin, Ph.D.

Director, Laboratory Services Section
