72268-6Streptococcus pyogenes exotoxin B speB gene [Presence] in Unspecified specimen by NAA with probe detectionActive

Part Description

LP156719-9   Streptococcus pyogenes exotoxin B speB gene
Streptococcus pyogenes, or Group A streptococcus (GAS), causes disease ranging from mild skin and throat infections (e.g. strep throat) to invasive life-threatening diseases, such as scarlet fever and necrotizing fasciitis ("flesh-eating disease"). The streptococcal pyrogenic exotoxin B (speB) gene of S. pyogenes is detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods (e.g. real-time PCR). The speB gene is commonly detected among S. pyogenes but it is not present among all subgroups. Source: Regenstrief LOINC, B blood group

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 the gene name in Component based on the current LOINC model.
Order vs. Observation
Both
