what is a diphtheria tube, and a typhus container???

matador 89
The diphtheria bacteria most commonly infects the nose and throat. The throat infection causes a gray-to-black, tough, fiber-like covering, which can block the airways. An O’Dwyer tube is a metal tube formerly used for intubation of the larynx in diphtheria. Commonly called a Diphtheria tube. The Typhus container may be either an EDTA - ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid - K2 Gel Tube for scrub typhus PCR - polymerase chain reaction -, or an SST – which refers to the Serum Separator Tube containing clot activator and serum separator gel, for scrub typhus antibodies.
Hope this helps
