Sample: incise superficial ear vein and use either umbilical tape or cotton swabs to soak up some of the blood.  

Shipping: triple bag the sample and place in a styrofoam cooler on ice for overnight delivery

Please alert the lab (KSVDL Client Care 866-512-5650) that an Anthrax suspect case is being shipped to reduce the exposure of lab personnel to this zoonotic.
