75676-7Deprecated Enterobacter sp (gyrB+metB) genes [Presence] by Nucleic acid capture and probe detection in Positive blood cultureDeprecated

Status Information

The "Probe.mag capture" Method has been deprecated and replaced with the more general "Probe" Method since the "mag capture" portion represents how the nucleic acids are isolated, which is not a distinction made in the LOINC Method for molecular tests. Given that updating the Method would change the meaning of the term, a new term was created to replace the existing term as recommended by the Special Topics workgroup on PCR-based Methods and approved by the LOINC Lab Committee at the June 2017 meeting.

88255-5 Enterobacter sp gyrB+metB genes [Presence] by Probe in Positive blood culture

Term Description

Magnetic beads and fluorescent probes are used to capture and detect targeted nucleic acid sequences specific to Enterobacter species within the gyrB and metB genes in positive blood culture. The gyrB gene encodes "DNA gyrase subunit B", and the metB gene encodes "cystathionine gamma-synthase".

Part Descriptions

LP185692-3   Enterobacter sp (gyrB+metB) genes
Enterobacter is a genus of common Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacteria of the family Enterobacteriaceae. Several strains of these bacteria are pathogenic and cause opportunistic infections in immunocompromised (usually hospitalized) hosts and in those who are on mechanical ventilation. The urinary and respiratory tracts are the most common sites of infection. Two clinically important species from this genus are E. aerogenes and E. cloacae.

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.
