Mnemonic:    [POST EXP]
Name:    Body Fluid Exposure Workup (Source)
Specimen:    3 mL serum from a Red SST or Red top tube.
NOTE: Bridgton and Rumford Hospitals use a different methodology than CMMC for the Rapid HIV assay. If the test is to be run at either of those labs, collect an EDTA (purple top) tube and a serum tube.
Note:    Includes a Hep BS Ag, Hep C Ab and an HIV Rapid Ab ordered at no charge.

This should be ordered for testing on the SOURCE of the exposure.

See special instructions.

This test is considered a Critical Test. All processing and delivery of results to the ordering provider will be handled ASAP.
Processing Info:    A Rule in PathNet will order the component tests as n/c when the POST EXP accession is inlab'd. The labels will print to LPCR.
