A preliminary step in obtaining material for the diagnosis of many lysosomal storage disorders and other genetic abnormalities
Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct test or proper submission of the test request
Fibroblast culture for biochemical genetic testing only. The Additional test(s) desired must be indicated on the request form that accompanies the specimen.
Additional Tests Lists test(s) that are always performed, at an additional charge, with the initial test(s)
|Test ID||Reporting Name||Available Separately||Always Performed|
|CRYOB||Cryopreserve for Biochem Studies||No||Yes|
Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
When this test is ordered, cryopreservation for biochemical studies will always be performed at an additional charge. However, for multiple lysosomal enzyme assays on a patient utilizing fibroblast culture, only 1 culture is required regardless of the number of enzyme assays ordered. If viable cells are not obtained within 30 days, client will be notified.
