                  dark over-container if possible- A sample approximately the size
                  of an ADAP bottle is sufficient. Units will decontaminate the
                  exterior of the bottle once they collect'the sample. An M23SAL
bleach will remove any possible agents. Once
                  the bottle is decontaminated, individuals will wear protective
                  gloves when handling the bottle.
