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

This is a consultative evaluation in which the case will be evaluated at Mayo Clinic Laboratories, the appropriate tests performed at an additional charge, and the results interpreted.

Note: RBCE / Reflexed RBC Enzymes, Blood includes: adenylate kinase, phosphofructokinase, phosphoglycerate kinase, triosephosphate isomerase, and pyrimidine 5'nucleotidase.
