New Tests


January 2015


New tests are continually developed by the clinical and research laboratories of Mayo Clinic. These tests are subjected to an intense laboratory and clinical correlative process to ensure their diagnostic utility prior to their release.

Significant new test announcements are included with each Communiqué issue to provide both clinical and technical information in a single document.

The following tests are described in this month's Communiqué:

DHR / Dihydrorhodamine (DHR) Flow Cytometric Test, Blood

  • Useful for: Diagnosis of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), X-linked and autosomal recessive forms, Rac2 deficiency, complete myeloperoxidase (MPO) deficiency; monitoring chimerism and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase function posthematopoietic cell transplantation ....more>>

DHRF / Dihydrorhodamine (DHR) Flow Cytometric N-Formyl-Methionyl-Leucyl-Phenylalanine (fMLP) Test, Blood

  • Useful for: Diagnosis of Rac2 deficiency ...more>>

DHRP / Dihydrorhodamine (DHR) Flow Cytometric Phorbol Myristate Acetate (PMA) Test, Blood

  • Useful for: Diagnosis of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), X-linked and autosomal recessive forms, complete myeloperoxidase (MPO) deficiency; monitoring chimerism and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase function posthematopoietic cell transplantation ...more>>

NKSP / Natural Killer (NK)/Natural Killer T (NKT) Cell Subset Panel

  • Useful for: Quantitation of NK/NKT cell subsets as well as quantitation of specific cell-surface and intracellular proteins required for NK cell function ...more>>

QNKS / Natural Killer (NK)/Natural Killer T (NKT) Cell Subsets, Quantitative

  • Useful for: Quantitation of ONLY the major NK-cell subsets relative to total NK cells (NK cell subsets) or total lymphocytes (NKT cells) and can be used for assessment  ...more>>

HTGR / Thyroglobulin, Tumor Marker Reflex to LC-MS/MS or Immunoassay

  • Useful for: Reporting of accurate thyroglobulin results, depending on the anti-thyroglobulin antibodies status of the patient ...more>>
