Focus on Specimen Quality - Impact of Cold Weather on Specimen Quality
Body:

Extreme weather can adversely affect specimen quality. If you use an outdoor lockbox, pay close attention to weather conditions and how they might affect your specimens awaiting pickup. Unspun or whole blood specimens may hemolyze when exposed to below freezing conditions—temperatures at or below 32° F.
 
Temperature extremes can impact your patients’ specimens. If not properly protected, these specimens may lead to treatment decisions based on misleading laboratory results. If your specimens will be exposed to freezing weather conditions, work with your sales representative to find the best way to protect your specimens.
