Antimicrobial Susceptibility, Aerobic Bacteria, MIC

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Determining the in vitro susceptibility of aerobic bacteria involved in human infections

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 separately. All aerobically growing bacteria submitted will automatically have susceptibility testing performed and billed as appropriate. Antimicrobial agent appropriate to the organism and specimen source will be tested.

 

See Special Instructions to review tables that provide a listing of the antimicrobials routinely tested in our laboratory as well as antimicrobials that may be tested upon request. These tables are organized by isolate groups and are not all inclusive. Contact MML and ask to speak to the Bacteriology Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Laboratory if the organism or antimicrobial of interest are not listed in these tables.

Special Instructions and Forms Describes specimen collection and preparation information, test algorithms, and other information pertinent to test. Also includes pertinent information and consent forms to be used when requesting a particular test
