Determining the relative amounts of donor and recipient cells in a specimen
An indicator of bone marrow transplant success
Initial Chimerism Testing:
Complete chimerism analysis requires 3 specimens. These specimens should be submitted when collected. An interpretive report will be provided once all specimens are received.
CHRGB / Chimerism-Recipient Germline (Pre)
CHIDB / Chimerism-Donor
CHIMU / Chimerism Transplant No Cell Sort or CHIMS / Chimerism Transplant Sorted Cells
Billing occurs with test codes CHRGB / Chimerism-Recipient Germline (Pre) (for the Pre and Donor specimens) and CHIMU / Chimerism Transplant No Cell Sort (for unsorted Post specimens), or SORT1 / Chimerism Cell Sort 1 (Bill Only) and/or SORT2 / Chimerism Cell Sort 2 (Bill Only) (for sorted Post specimen). If an additional donor specimen is submitted, ADONO / Additional Chimerism Donor will be performed at an additional charge.
