Diagnosis of infections due to Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.
This assay should only be used for testing of respiratory tract specimens (throat swabs, nasopharyngeal swabs, tracheal secretions, sputum, and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid) and pleural/chest fluid, pericardial fluid, and cerebrospinal fluid.
Collect swab specimen by swabbing back and forth over mucosa surface to maximize recovery of cells and place in M4-RT transport media. Send fluid specimens in a sterile tube or container. Refrigerate (preferred) or freeze. Indicate specimen source, collection date/time, current antibiotic therapy, and clinical diagnosis.
