Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
A molecular interpretation will be provided when the Hereditary Erythrocytosis Mutation assay (HEMP) is ordered.
Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing
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.
Specimen Stability Information Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the laboratory. Alternate acceptable temperature(s) are also included.
