Use Case Summary

Public Health Labs often receive isolates submitted for reference testing. The specimen type for that ordered test is the isolate, but information about where the isolate was grown form is important to know, so it also needs to be conveyed.

A related use case is the testing of nucleic acid extracted from a sample, either submitted that way, or processed at the lab.

There are several attributes about that original specimen:

  • its type (at minimum)
  • its source site
  • its collection method (if important)
  • additives / transport media
