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

If RMSF IgG is Detected, then FRMFG RMSF IgG Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If RMSF IgM is Detected, then FRMFM RMSF IgM Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If R. Typhi IgG is Detected, then FRTG R. Typhi IgG Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If R. Typhi IgM is Detected, then FRTM R. Typhi IgM Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If Brucella IgM is > or =1.10, then FBRAG Brucella Agglutination will be performed at an additional charge.

Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing

Serum

Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.

Draw blood in a plain, red-top tube(s) or serum gel tube(s). Spin down and send 3 mL of serum refrigerated.

Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.
