Aerobic Culture Susceptibility Panel

Test Schedule
Lab Lab section Days Turnaround
WADDL - Pullman Bacteriology Mon-Fri 2-7 days
Price: $90.00
To help take the guess work out of the cost of aerobic cultures, the Aerobic Culture Susceptibility Panel was created to include the costs of one Aerobic Culture and one Antimicrobial Susceptibility Test. The panel is at a discounted price compared to ordering the tests separately. 

Please note, when ordering this panel we cannot discount the cost of antimicrobial susceptibility testing if no pathogen is identified and no susceptibility is performed. 

If more than one antimicrobial susceptibility test is performed it will be charged as an additional cost.
