Familial Hibernian Fever; TNF-Receptor-Associated Periodic Syndrome (TRAPS)
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Genomic DNA from this specimen was PCR-amplified for analysis of exons 2-5, their flanking splice sites, as well as introns 2 and 4 of the TNFRSF1A gene. Bi-directional sequence was obtained and DNA sequence was analyzed and compared to the published gene sequence. The methods used by GeneDx are expected to be greater than 99% sensitive in detecting mutations identifiable by sequencing.
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.
4 - 6 weeks
Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result
5 - 7 weeks
Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test
