Specimen Stability Information
Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the performing laboratory, alternate acceptable temperatures are also included
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
Interpretive Information: Hepatitis B Virus Genotype
HBV genotype and resistance interpretation is provided by SeqHepB software from Evivar Medical. The following mutations are reported: reverse transcriptase L80I/V, Il69T, V173L, L180M, A181S/T/V, T184A/C/F/I/G/S/M/L, S202C/G/I, M204I/V, N236T, M250I/L/V; surface antigen P120T, D144A, G145R.
Both the HBV RT polymerase and the HBsAg encoding regions are sequenced. Resistance and surface antigen mutations are reported. In addition, the major HBV genotypes are identified. Mutations in viral sub-populations below 20% of total may not be detected.
This test is performed pursuant to a license agreement with Roche Molecular Systems, Inc.

Provides information regarding the medical device classification for laboratory test kits and reagents. Tests may be classified as cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used per manufacturer instructions, or as products that do not undergo full FDA review and approval, and are then labeled as an Analyte Specific Reagent (ASR) product.
This test was developed and its performance characteristics determine by ARUP Laboratories. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. This test was performed in a CLIA certified laboratory and is intended for clinical purpose.
CPT Code Information
Provides guidance in determining the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code(s) information for each test or profile. The listed CPT codes reflect Mayo Clinic Laboratories interpretation of CPT coding requirements. It is the responsibility of each laboratory to determine correct CPT codes to use for billing.
CPT codes are provided by the performing laboratory.
