#ExistRefRange>Complete identification of clinically significant isolates.
||Testing performed and associated charges billed depends on specimen source and type of organism suspected. An additional handling fee will be billed for all mixed cultures as indicated in the specimen requirements.
Submission of mixed cultures will result in delayed turnaround time and increased charges. Isolation of organism should be ensured prior to submission. Order a separate test for each organism identification required.
For identification by 16s rDNA sequencing only, order Organism Identification by 16s rDNA Sequencing (ARUP test code 0060720). For identification AND susceptibility testing order Anaerobic Organism Identification with Reflex to Susceptibility (ARUP test code 0060198).
