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. All fungal organisms submitted will be identified and billed as appropriate.

Special Instructions Library of PDFs including pertinent information and forms related to the test

Method Name A short description of the method used to perform the test

Fungi are identified using macroscopic and microscopic morphology, nucleic acid hybridization probes, D2 rDNA gene sequencing, real-time polymerase chain reaction (rtPCR), or MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. Dimorphic pathogen identification is confirmed using molecular methods (ie, nucleic acid hybridization probe, D2 rDNA gene sequencing, rtPCR or MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry).

NY State Available Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.
