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