ARUP's Laboratory Test Directory
ARUP's Laboratory Test Directory contains complete, up-to-date test information, including methodology and reporting times, collection and transportation specifications, reference intervals, test notes, and CPT codes. Clients can access entries via an A to Z index and search by test name, key word, test number, or mnemonic.
The * wildcard is used to search for many letters within a word and can be used when the spelling, suffix, or prefix of the search term are in question: e.g., manage* = management, manages, managed, manager, etc.; d*ing = divorcing, dividing, droning, etc.
The ? wildcard is used to search for a single letter within a word and can be used when the spelling of the search term is in question: e.g., h?t = hat, hit, hot, etc. (but will NOT find heat).
ARUP Laboratory Test Directory Now Features Print and Email Options for Test Entries.
Print and email icons appear directly below the test numbers on the top right side of the test page. However, please note that this feature is not compatible with Internet Explorer 7.
Ebola Specimen Guidelines
Ebola Virus Disease, one of numerous viral hemorrhagic fevers, is a severe, often fatal disease in humans and nonhuman primates. Any laboratory testing requested on specimens from suspected Ebola patients should not be sent to ARUP but held until results for Ebola testing are confirmed as negative by the CDC.
Herpesvirus 6 Antibody, IgM Screen with Reflex to Titer by IFA
This new assay, ARUP test code 2011420, ensures the quality and accuracy of herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) test results.
Enterovirus Detection by PCR
ARUP offers 0050249 Enterovirus Detection by PCR, which can detect enterovirus D68; however, this test will not distinguish D68 from a broad range of other enteroviruses. Nasopharyngeal swabs in viral transport media are an acceptable specimen type for this test. Respiratory fluids can be tested with a suboptimal specimen disclaimer upon client approval.
Immediate Inactivation of Arbovirus Serology Assays and Associated Panels
Due to a vendor production issue with arbovirus slides and kits, many ARUP arbovirus tests will be inactivated immediately, with no referral testing available in the US. West Nile Virus antibodies remain available.
