Part Descriptions

LP422578-7   Medium induced in vitro yeast conversion
In vitro conversion refers to morphological changes undergone by fungi in response to nutrients or temperature, such as conversion between mycelial, yeast and conidial forms. Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP6209-3   Culture
A culture is a laboratory procedure where a sample of tissue or fluid from a patient is placed in or on growth media (agar, broth) to induce the proliferation of potentially infectious agents (bacteria, fungi, viruses). The presence of growth is documented and the organisms are identified to determine whether or not a pathogen is present.
Once a pathogen is identified, specific testing techniques can be used to determine drug susceptibilities for assistance in treatment. [https://courses.lumenlearning.com/boundless-microbiology/chapter/culturing-bacteria/] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
