To satisfy AATB, FDA , and  other regulatory agency requirements, cultures are taken of the HCT/P prior to any processing steps that are intended to reduce and eliminate microorganisms that would compromise the recipient of transplanted product.   For musculoskeletal recovered tissues VRL-Eurofins has validated both the Amies w/o charcoal culturette and the E-Swab transport system. Extractions with filtration, direct inoculation of tissue pieces or transport solutions can be used to provide that information as well.  VRL-Eurofins can consult with processors to assist in the decision of the type of sample to be submitted for these cultures.
