    present as an adjective?

    In the sentence below what's the function of "present"?

    The importance of proper specimen collection and submission cannot be overemphasized. At least one half to two thirds of false negatives are the result of patient conditions present at the time of sample collection and submission and the skill and knowledge of the individual who obtains the specimen
    .
