MCS Micro Culture StatusSub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies observations that give overall culture outcome, when no specific organism is being named.Examples are: no growth, normal flora
MID Micro Isolate DescriptorSub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies any other observations about the isolate.Examples: 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.Examples: <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.Examples 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 RelatedSub-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 ModifierSub-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.)
MNIR Micro Non-Isolate RelatedMicro Non-Isolate RelatedSub-type of RSLT (Result) - qualifies result as microbiology not related to any isolate (e.g., gram stain observations)Sub-type of RSLT (Result) - qualifies result as microbiology not related to any isolate (e.g., gram stain observations)
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.
MSS Micro Sample StainSub-type of RSLT (Result) This term identifies observations on gram stains (and other stains or smears) on the clinical sample.Examples are: many gram positive rods, acid fast bacteria seen, etc.
SUP Supplemental ResultSupplemental ResultSub-type of RSLT (Result) - result coming over is additional material, for example points on a graph, an image, raw instrument data, links to related observations, etc.Sub-type of RSLT (Result) - result coming over is additional material, for example points on a graph, an image, raw instrument data, links to related observations, etc.
SUR Susceptibility RelatedSusceptibility RelatedSub-type of RSLT (Result) - result value is for micro susceptibility/sensitivitySub-type of RSLT (Result) - result value is for micro susceptibility/sensitivity
