LP6760-5   Wet preparation
A wet preparation or wet mount is used to identify the cause of vaginosis, a general term for infections of the vagina. A drop of vaginal discharge is placed on a slide with a drop of liquid -usually water--which is then examined microscopically as an unstained wet mount or as a Gram-stained slide. The refractive index of the water improves the image quality. Wet mounts generally cannot be stored since the water evaporates. Glycerol or immersion oil can be used instead of water. Bacterial vaginosis, candidiasis and trichomoniasis are common diseases which may be diagnosed through a wet preparation. [Lab Tests Online Conditions:vaginitis/start/2] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP7037-7   Asp
In LOINC, the System "Asp" represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst. "Asp" should not be used to represent named body fluids, such as synovial fluid or peritoneal fluid, because those fluids are not inherently pathologic and also, they have their own named Systems in LOINC.
