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.

Wildcard Searching

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).

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.
