EMDIS message: IDM_RES

Description Result of infectious disease marker request

The IDM_RES message provides infectious disease marker results together with mandatory fields that identify Donor, Patient and request.

The common use of IDM_RES message is in response to SMP_REQ message for Verification Typing (CT), in addition to shipment of the donor blood sample. Please note there may be charge involved with this service. If a fee is charged, it may come as a separate item or might be included in the price of the sample shipment. Such IDM_RES messages can be sent via a regular EMDIS message - the remote hub must be able to handle it appropriately. The IDM_RES must have the same REF_CODE as the SMP_REQ.

IDM_RES message can be generated in response to two different message requests:

  1. SMP_REQ does not specify what set of infectious disease markers to be tested
  2. IDM_REQ does specify what set of infectious disease markers to be tested

The field IDM_RES.MARKER is a required field.

For those hubs reporting infectious disease markers during verification typing (CT), the MARKER field should contain the IDMs actually tested. There is a fixed length binary field for the IDMs result message. The blood group may be also reported.

Please see IDM_REQ.MARKER for the definition of IDM_RES.MARKER.

Infectious disease markers results can be also reported as a part of SMP_RES message by the hub (transplant centre) that requested the blood sample. This is to give the transplant centres the possibility to report the results of IDMs they might have tested.
