Antimicrobial Susceptibility Panel, Yeast
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Yeast susceptibility is determined by colorimetric microdilution broth method using TREK Sensititre YeastOne Y09 Susceptibility Plate. Each plate is setup with appropriate dilutions of antifungal agents and a colorimetric indicator. After inoculation with a standardized suspension of organism in inoculum medium and incubation at 35 degrees C for 24 to 48 hours; the minimum inhibitory concentrations for the test organism are determined by observing the lowest antifungal concentration showing inhibition of growth (as evidenced by no color change of the test medium).

Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
Monday through Saturday; Varies
Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.
Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result
Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded
Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test
