Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

When this test is ordered, the reflex tests may be performed and charged.

Method Name A short description of the method used to perform the test

Conventional agar culture technique with identification by macroscopic and microscopic morphology, D2 rDNA gene sequencing, real-time polymerase chain reaction (rtPCR), or MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. Dimorphic pathogen identification is confirmed using molecular methods (ie, D2 rDNA gene sequencing, rtPCR or MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry).

(PCR is utilized pursuant to a license agreement with Roche Molecular Systems, Inc.)
