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).

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.
