Aerobic Bacteria, ID by Seq.
Determine the identification of isolates (ie, bacterial, fungal, mycobacterial, etc) from another laboratory that has performed culture of the clinical specimen. These isolates may include strict aerobes, facultative anaerobes, anaerobes, yeast, filamentous fungi, mycobacteria, Nocardia, and/or actinomycetes.
Pure culture isolate of bacteria, yeast, mold, Nocardia, or mycobacteria
Viable colonies macroscopically visiblePure culture isolate (visible colonies should be present
Bacterial swab transport inoculated with the isolate from a pure culture or agar slant in screw-cap container packed as an etiologic agent. Maintain a subculture at the submitting laboratory
Maintain media at room temperature. Ensure that plated media has been securely sealed with parafilm
Isolate nonviable; unlabeled specimen or name discrepancy between specimen and request label; broken tube or plate; mixed culture
