76575-0Bacterial 16S rRNA [Presence] in Unspecified specimen by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, Pathogenius Laboratories' Level 1 Wound and/or ENT test panels, which use quantitative PCR to identify commonly-found microorganisms in wound or ear, nose, and throat samples, respectively.

Part Description

LP189395-9   Bacterial 16S rRNA
Sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene is commonly used for taxonomic classification and identification of bacteria. The 16S gene is approximately 1500bp long and is universal in bacteria, allowing its relationships to be measured among all bacteria. Because it is universal among all bacteria, detection of 16S RNA can also be used to estimate bacterial load. The 16S sequence has a role in identifying bacteria that are atypical or rare that are unable to be identified by phenotypic tests alone. In general there is not enough variation in 16S sequence for its use in distinguishing strains for epidemiological purposes. Source: Regenstrief LOINC

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.
