  TEST COMMENTS The test is designed to identify all bacteria in a sample and report their taxonomy. This test may not be able to identify sub-species or serotypes. Additionally, this test will identify uncultivatable bacteria and bacteria that not have been fully characterized so some bacteria may only be identified to taxonomic levels higher than genus. Identification of bacterial species is done by 16S rRNA gene sequencing and phylogenetic analysis. Clinical specimens and DNA from a clinical sample are accepted from domestic (USA) senders, and can be shipped on ice for overnight delivery; only specimen DNA is accepted from international senders, and samples should be shipped on dry ice if overnight delivery is not feasible. Only clinical specimens or DNA from a specimen is accepted.
