Evaluation of patients with clinical presentations suggestive of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL)
An aid in the differential diagnosis of infantile and late infantile NCL when fibroblasts are available
NCL testing in fibroblast specimens
This test is an appropriate first step for individuals who present between the ages of 0 and 4 with symptoms consistent with neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis.
|Test ID||Reporting Name||Available Separately||Always Performed|
|CRYOB||Cryopreserve for Biochem Studies||No||Yes|
When this test is ordered, a fibroblast culture and 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 10 days, client will be notified.
