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. All aerobically growing bacteria submitted will be identified and billed as appropriate.
Note: Mayo Medical Laboratories recommends referring suspect select agent isolates (eg, Bacillus anthracis, Brucella species, Burkholderia mallei, Burkholderia pseudomallei, Francisella tularensis, or Yersinia pestis) to your state health department or the CDC for identification confirmation or exclusion.
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
Dependent on organism submitted, 1 or more of the following methods will be used: conventional biochemical testing, commercial identification strips or panels, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, and 16S RNA gene sequencing.
NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.
Reporting Name A shorter/abbreviated version of the Published Name for a test; an abbreviated test name
