Test ID: OIL28    
Interleukin 28B (IL28B) Polymorphism (rs12979860), Saliva

Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing

Saliva

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.

When this test is ordered, DNA extraction will always be performed at an additional charge. However, for multiple saliva genotype test orders, only a single specimen is needed. The DNA extraction will only be charged once.

 

Container/Tube: Oragene DNA Self-Collection Kit (Supply T651: fees apply)

Specimen Volume: Full tube

Collection Instructions:

1. Fill tube to line.

2. Send specimen in original container per kit instructions.

Forms: New York Clients-Informed consent is required. Please document on the request form or electronic order that a copy is on file. An Informed Consent for Genetic Testing (Supply T576) is available in Special Instructions.

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.
