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 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.

Ebola Virus Disease Specimen Guidelines
EVD, one of numerous viral hemorrhagic fevers, is a severe, often fatal disease in humans and nonhuman primates. Specimens from suspect Ebola patients ordered for additional testing (e.g., malaria, typhoid fever, or HFV) should NOT be sent to ARUP but held until results for Ebola testing are confirmed by the CDC.
