Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.; Removed parentheses around gene name in Component based on the current LOINC model.; ; Updated System from "Isolate" and Method from "Probe.amp.tar" according to the new, more sustainable model for LOINC molecular resistance terms [Approved by LOINC Laboratory Committee in June 2018].
Order vs. Observation
Both
