Microbiology Local Processing

The CDASHIG MB domain is used to represent microbiology findings from tests or measurements performed on collected biological specimens, such as the identification, quantification, and other characterization of microorganisms. Any drug susceptibility testing is represented in the Microbiology Susceptibility (MS) domain. The MB domain typically includes organisms found (e.g., non-host organisms identified including bacteria, viruses, parasites, protozoa, and fungi), gram stain results, and organism growth status. Culture characteristics may also be included (e.g., growth/no growth, colony quantification measures, colony color, colony morphology).

Local Processing - In this scenario, biological specimens are taken and analyzed, and the results are recorded directly on the CRF.

This example is for a COVID test. The user will need to update the questions, as appropriate.
MBGRPID is not present in the example CRF; it can be included in the SDTM dataset, as appropriate.
