Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.

Test IDReporting NameAvailable SeparatelyAlways Performed
SDHMSSDH Gene AnalysisNoYes
SDHSQSDH Gene SequencingNoYes

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 IDReporting NameAvailable SeparatelyAlways Performed
SHDDSDH Deletion DetectionYes, (order #89555)No

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If SDH gene sequencing does not identify a mutation, then SDH deletion detection will be performed at an additional charge.
