Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

When this test is ordered the reflex tests may be performed and charged separately. All bacterial organisms submitted will automatically have susceptibility testing performed and billed as appropriate. Antimicrobial agents appropriate to the organism and specimen source will be tested according to Mayo’s practice and the laboratory’s standard operating procedures.

 

See Anaerobic Bacteria Antimicrobials in Special Instructions to review the table which provides a listing of the antimicrobials routinely tested in our laboratory as well as antimicrobials that may be tested upon request. Call 800-533-1710 and ask to speak to the Bacteriology Anaerobe Laboratory if the organism or antimicrobial of interest is not listed in this table.

 

Anaerobe susceptibility battery will routinely be tested and billed. If fewer than 3 antibiotics will be reported, then the battery will be canceled and an anaerobe susceptibility per agent will be charged per antibiotic. Based on susceptibility criteria, beta lactamase and/or anaerobe susceptibility per agent may be performed at an additional charge.
