Aerobic Identification and Susceptibility
Identification, Sensitivity, Susceptibility, Organism ID and sensi, Aerobic ID, Sensi
Identification of routine bacteria to genus or species level and quantitative determination of antimicrobial susceptibility. Pure isolate of aerobic or facultatively anaerobic organisms; identification of multiple organisms will result in an additional fee(s).
|Alternate Specimen Type||
Bacterium derived from cultured clinical sample. Pure culture of aerobic bacteria on agar plate taped shut or slant.
|Specimen Collection / Processing Instructions||
Viable colonies macroscopically visible. Maintain isolate at room temperature. Maintain a subculture at the submitting laboratory.
|Additional Processing Details||
Label sample. Include any special identification instructions. Note: Identification of atypical organisms may require an additional charge.
Room temperature: 48 hours
|Unacceptable Specimen Conditions||
Crushed agar plate; broken tube; improper labeling; mixed culture
Biochemical testing, Minimum Inhibitory Concentration Susceptibility testing
This test is for the identification of “routine” bacteria; those found to require extensive biochemical testing require an additional charge.
