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).
