Collection: Collect 2 sets (ie 2 x 2 bottles) at
least 15 minutes apart from 2 different
venipuncture sites BEFORE starting antimicrobial
therapy. Pyrexia of Unknown Origin: Collect 2
separate sets initially and 2 more sets 24-36
hours later. NO MORE than 4 blood culture sets
in total are of value. Endocarditis: Collection of
3 sets from 3 different venipuncture sites at 10-
15 minute intervals is recommended. For SBE,
collection of 3 sets of blood culture at least 30
minutes apart on day 1 is recommended for
patients having no antibiotics in the last 2
weeks. A further 3 sets may be necessary if the
first sets are negative provided that antibiotics
have not been administered. For patients who

requested as CD34, one performed at PAH and
one at BMT lab. You must call BMT lab on
