Effective October 3, 2022, Abbot multi-collect kits [ITM-1093897] will be discontinued and replaced with Alinity m Collection kit [ITM-1190747].
On October 1, 2022, Spectrum Health Laboratories will update instrumentation for Chlamydia and Gonococcus testing. The “multi-collect” kit will no longer be available in our warehouse (though, still valid to run on the new instrument). Beginning late September, you may receive different swabs for this new assay. Please refrain from using the new swab until October 1, 2022.
To order the new swabs:
Spectrum Health and SHMG, please order via Workday ITM-1190747 beginning 9/26/2022 (Reminder that new Alinity m tubes may not be used until October 1, 2022.)
Independent Offices or other non-Spectrum Health Clinical Care Sites, please use the Supply Form and continue to order “STD multi-collection kit”
