#ExistRefRange>Complete identification and susceptibility of clinically significant isolates.
||If a significant organism is identified, then the appropriate susceptibility panel will be added. Additional charges apply.
A handling fee will be billed for all organisms submitted that are not in pure culture as requested in the specimen requirements. Identification of AFB isolates is billed by individual probes and tests performed.
||CPT codes for identification and susceptibility vary based on method.
