  • Labeling Protocol for Biopsy and Pap Specimen Containers

    According to CAP (College of American Pathology) guidelines, all specimens received by a laboratory must have two patient identifiers on the specimen container. Along with the patient’s first and last name, either their date of birth, chart number or social security must be included on the specimen container. The patient information on the container must match the information on the requisition accompanying the specimen. Biopsy containers must include the specimen source, in addition, to the two patient identifiers.
