‹ Back to Hematology index

NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.


Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Aiding in the diagnosis of new cases of multiple myeloma or other plasma cell proliferative disorders


Identifying prognostic markers based on the anomalies found

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

This test is designed for diagnostic specimens. The test panel includes analysis for the disease-associated abnormalities using the probes listed below:


-13/13q-, RB1/LAMP1

t(11;14), CCND1/IGH

t(14;var), IGH

17p-, TP53/Cen17

+3/+7, Cen3/Cen7

+9/+15, Cen9/Cen15

1q gain, TP73/CKS1B

t(8;var), MYC


When an IGH rearrangement is identified and the partner is not CCND1, reflex testing is performed to identify the translocation partner. Probes include identification of t(4;14)(p16.3;q32) FGFR3/IGH, t(14;16)(q32;q23) IGH/MAF, t(14;20)(q32;q12) IGH/MAFB, or t(6;14)(p21;q32) CCND3/IGH.


Initial screening will be performed using a limited number of probes to determine if sufficient plasma cells are present within the provided specimen.


For diagnostic samples (unless otherwise specified), all probes in the panel will be evaluated if sufficient plasma cells are identified.


For follow-up samples (unless otherwise specified), only TP73/CKS1B, TP53/Cen17 and MYC probes along with probes that were abnormal in a previous study will be tested. If a previous sample was uninformative due to an insufficient number of plasma cells, the complete panel will be evaluated (if sufficient plasma cells are identified).
