MCS Micro Culture StatusSub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies observations that give overall culture outcome, when no specific organism is being named.NExamples are: no growth, normal flora
MID Micro Isolate DescriptorSub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies any other observations about the isolate.NExamples: catalase positive, hemolytic, etc.
MIG Micro Isolate Growth QuantitySub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies growth levels of an isolate – can be numeric or categorical.NExamples: <10,000 CFU, >100,00 CFU, Few, Moderate, Many, etc.
MIN Micro Isolate NameSub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies observations that name a specific organism either at the species or the genus level.NExamples are: Genus Serratia, Neisseria meningitidis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, but also identification on a culture plate like presumptive Proteus species.
MIR Micro Isolate RelatedMicro Isolate RelatedDSub-type of RSLT (Result) - qualifies the result as an isolate.Sub-type of RSLT (Result) - qualifies the result as an isolate.
MIRM Micro Isolate Related ModifierMicro Isolate Related ModifierDSub-type of RSLT (Result) - result is a modifier of the isolate (e.g., Few, Some, etc.)Sub-type of RSLT (Result) - result is a modifier of the isolate (e.g., Few, Some, etc.)

MOD Micro Other DescriptorSub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies observations that do not fit the culture status, but is not at the isolate level.N
MSS Micro Sample StainSub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies observations on gram stains (and other stains or smears) on the clinical sample.AExamples are: many gram positive rods, acid fast bacteria seen, etc.
