ARCHETYPE Specimen container (openEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.specimen_container.v1)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.specimen_container.v1
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 has been designed to be used within OBSERVATION.laboratory test_result, CLUSTER.specimen, CLUSTER.biobank_storage, CLUSTER.biospecimen_summary and other clinically appropriate archetypes. Commonly the CLUSTER.specimen and the CLUSTER.specimen_container will be used as a pair, with order of nesting varying as appropriate for the use case. 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 a container used to hold, transport and/or archive a specimen for laboratory examination.
