77682-3Staphylococcus aureus methicillin resistance SCCmec+orfX junction [Presence] in Nose by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

This assay is not intended to diagnose MRSA infections nor to guide or monitor treatment. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, the submitter's BD GeneOhm MRSA Assay test kit which directly detects, through the presence of SCCmec cassette at the orfX junction, nasal colonization by methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) to aid in the prevention and control of infections in healthcare settings, for patients at risk.

Part Description

LP190755-1   Staphylococcus aureus methicillin resistance SCCmec+orfX junction
Methicillin resistance in S. aureus is primarily mediated by the mecA gene which is carried on a mobile genetic element called the staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec), which integrates at an open reading frame in the S. aureus genome known as orfX. 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.; Removed parentheses around SCCmec+orfX in Component based on our current LOINC model.
