ARCHETYPE Specimen container (openEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.specimen_container.v0)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.specimen_container.v0
ConceptSpecimen container
DescriptionDetails of a container used to hold, transport and/or archive a specimen for laboratory examination.
UseUse to record details of a container used to hold transport and/or archive a specimen for laboratory examination. This archetype is designed to be used within the archetype "Laboratory test result" (OBSERVATION.laboratory_test_result) and together with the Specimen archetype (CLUSTER.specimen) to support the variety of clinical practice. In some situations, a single specimen will be divided into more than one container, or containers may be nested within larger containers. For example: - The ‘Specimen container’ can be nested within 'Specimen'; for example, when a venous blood specimen is divided between two vials, or a whole large intestine is divided into three buckets. - The 'Specimen' can be nested within 'Specimen container'; for example, when a bucket of formalin contains a section of large intestine and a rectum, or a jar contains five individually marked moles.
PurposeTo record details of the container used to hold a specimen for laboratory examination.
