Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing


Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.

Submit 1 mL of spinal fluid (CSF) in a sterile, plastic screw-cap vial. Freeze specimen after collection and ship at frozen temperature.


Note: Complete and submit with specimen, Medical Neurogenetics Neurochemistry request form with Physician name and phone number. Also include test required, sample date, date of birth, current medications and relevant history.

Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.
