Bacteria identification in various specimens (urine, blood, stool, etc.) by culture or other method is performed to determine the cause of an infection or illness. For most routine cultures, the lab is looking for bacteria. Such cultures may also grow out fungi, and if so they too would also be reported under the same test name. But, the cultures would not be optimized for growing out fungi hence the bacteria-focused name. Therefore, a routine urine culture, for example, would be mapped to this code:
