What is a Collection Site?

A Collection site is a place (it may be permanent or temporary) that is designated for donors to present themselves for the purpose of providing a specimen for testing. 

Collection site refers to the entire area that is used to conduct the test, and includes three parts:

  1. First is the collection area - This is the area where the specimen will be collected, and must be a secure and private place. The selected area will depend on the type of specimen being collected.

  2. Second is the work area - The work area is the space where the collector will speak with the donor, complete paperwork, and get the shipment ready for shipping.

  3. Third is the rest area - The rest area is a station for the donor if they are unable to provide a specimen or need to observe a waiting period.
