The clinical relevance of allergen results of 0.10 - 0.34 kU/L are undetermined and intended for specialist use. Allergens denoted with a ** include results using one or more analyte specific reagents. In those cases, the test was developed and its analytical performance characteristics have been determined by Quest Diagnostics. It has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDA has determined that such clearance or approval is not necessary. This assay has been validated pursuant to the CLIA regulations and is used for clinical purposes

Cultivars within the genus may be divided into 6 general types: Popcorn (everta), Flint corn (indurata), Dent corn (indenta), Flour corn (amylacea), Sweet corn (saccharata) and Pod corn (tunicata).
There are, however, only 2 basic types: "Sweet corn" is distinguished from "Field corn" by the high sugar content of the kernels at the early "dough" stage and by wrinkled, translucent kernels when dry
