    While working on a Lab hierarchy content, we’ve noticed that the class “ABXBACT” refers so several different type of codes which doesn’t seem to belong together:

    73657-9Varicella zoster virus ORF36 genotype [Identifier]

    77734-2Mycobacterium abscessus complex clarithromycin resistance erm(41) full length gene [Presence] by Molecular method

    96107-8Bedaquiline [Susceptibility] by Genotype method

    If all of them really do belong in the same class,  how come only one has “[Susceptibility]” in it’s long common name?
    I couldn’t find an answer in the documentation.
