The following information was updated in the Lab Catalog.


Test Updates

MRSA PCR (LAB1230829) has a new order code: LAB1230856

FLT3 Mutation Analysis [LAB1230860] is now performed in-house and is no longer sent out to Mayo Clinic Lab.

•  HIV 1/HIV 2 Antibody and Antigen Screen [LAB3617] or Diagnostic [LAB3616]

Collection Note for microtainers: Recent enhancements to the HIV assay may require a greater volume if result is Reactive due to the automatic repeat of results in duplicate.

Reflex Update: If HIV-1/2 Antibody is Reactive, then HIV 1/ HIV2 Ab Confirmation (lab orderable only) will be automatically ordered by the LIS if there is not a previous Reactive Geenius. HIV-1 RNA, Quantitative, PCR is strongly recommended to be ordered by physician and re-collect for further evaluation of the confirmatory testing is negative.
