Interpretive Data
This assay detects and identifies human fungal pathogens by Sanger sequencing. This assay cannot differentiate invasive fungal infection from environmental fungal DNA. Clinical correlation of sequencing result is recommended.

Compliance Statement B: For laboratory developed tests not using a RUO kit, and for FDA approved, cleared or 510(k) exempt assays with alterations. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions.
