The Guide for Using LOINC Microbiology Terms was created to help users select the most appropriate LOINC terms for clinical microbiology and infectious diseases laboratory tests according to best practices. The audience for this guide includes in vitro diagnostic (IVD) assay vendors, laboratory professionals, and anyone else that is mapping laboratory catalogs or individual tests within the fields of microbiology and infectious diseases to LOINC.
We are working on a dedicated Feedback site for you to provide comments, proposed edits, or other suggestions for future versions of this Guide; until that site is available, you may submit feedback via our Contact LOINC page.
