Hemophilia B, F9 Gene Mutation Analysis, Whole Blood
Ascertaining the causative mutation in the F9 gene of patients with congenital hemophilia B (factor IX activity deficiency)
Carrier testing of females in whom the familial F9 genotype is unknown
Reflex Tests Lists test(s) that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial test(s)
|Test ID||Reporting Name||Available Separately||Always Performed|
|MATCC||Maternal Cell Contamination, B||Yes||No|
Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
Maternal cell contamination testing will be performed for all cord blood specimens. A maternal whole blood sample is required to perform this test.
The following algorithms are available in Special Instructions:
-Hemophilia Carrier Testing Algorithm
