#ExistRefRange>Complete identification, with susceptibility of clinically significant isolates.
||Testing performed and associated charges billed depends on specimen source and type of organism suspected. If a significant organism is identified, then the appropriate susceptibility panel will be added. Additional charges apply. An additional handling fee will be billed for all mixed cultures as indicated in the specimen requirements.
For suspected agents of bioterrorism, Salmonella or Shigella, notify your state department of health and refer isolates to your state laboratory for identification. Susceptibilities on agents of bioterrorism are not performed at ARUP.
For identification of Shiga-like toxin producing E. coli order test E. coli Shiga-like toxin by EIA (ARUP test code 0060047).
||87077 and/or 87153; CPT codes for identification and susceptibility vary based on method.
