    Description

      Add description of when this extension should be used instead of Observation.specimen. A code-only specimen identification can be done with Observation.specimen.identifier or a contained (mostly-empty) specimen resource. If the use cannot be strongly articulated, remove this extension, or consider changing specimen to CodeableReference.
