The average incubation period for detection with Chlamydia testing and Gonorrhea testing is typically from a few days to a few weeks after a contact.

Requirements:

Client should provide a first catch of urine, about 20-30 ml, from the initial stream into the collection cup and allow the remainder of the stream to go into the toilet. Larger volumes may result in the dilution of the specimen and reduce sensitivity. Clients should not cleanse the genital area 1-2 hours prior to giving their urine specimen.
