Interim Guidelines for Rabies Specimen Packaging and Transport - May 3, 2017
What’s On Your Mind?: 

The attached file contains the Interim Guidelines for Packaging and Transport of Animal Rabies Specimens to the Public Health and Environmental Laboratories (PHEL), May 3, 2017. These guidelines include important updates that are highlighted within the text.

For additional information related to preparing, packaging and tracking specimens, the best way to contact PHEL is to send an email inquiry to rabies.PHEL@doh.nj.gov. A team of technical staff are monitoring this group email and will provide prompt responses.

PHEL may also be contacted by phone at (609) 530-8416, (609) 671-6418 or (609) 671-6419. These phones will be answered or messages left on the associated voicemails will be retrieved multiple times during routine business hours. Messages should not be left regarding test results. All test reports will be delivered via fax to the LHD specified on the submitted VIR-16 form, and the NJDOH CDS will contact LHDs by phone to convey positive and unsatisfactory results.
