    Why is the suffix ‘identified’ added to components in microbiology and in the long name.
    example :

    17928-3
    Component: Bacteria identified
    Long Name: Bacteria identified in blood by aerobic culture

    This makes the reporting of a negative blood culture result very confusing.

    “No growth”, “normal flora” and other non-organism result (or code) is an acceptable result for the “isolated” terms.
