CLSI  M35-A2 (Replaces M35-A)
Abbreviated Identification of Bacteria and Yeast; Approved Guideline - Second Edition.
This standard includes the minimum identification criteria that can be used to rapidly identify a limited number of organisms commonly isolated from patient specimens. Although these tests do not rule out an occasional misidentification, those errors may not have important consequences with regard to patient outcome. Those situations in which rapid test results may have limitations are described. Unless those exceptions provide clinically useful information, confirmatory identification need not be done.
