B-Cell Lymphoma, FISH, Blood or Bone Marrow
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
This test is performed using either commercially available or laboratory-developed probes. Rearrangements (MYC, BCL2, BCL6, CCND2, or MALT1) are detected using dual-color break-apart (BAP) strategy probes, translocations (involving MYC, MALT1, or CCND1/IGH) are identified using dual-color, dual-fusion (D-FISH) strategy probes, and deletions (7q32 or TP53) using enumeration strategy probes. A total of 200 interphase nuclei are scored for the break-apart and enumeration strategy probes and 500 nuclei are scored for each D-FISH probe set. The results are expressed as percent abnormal nuclei.(Unpublished Mayo method)

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.
Samples processed Monday through Sunday. Results reported Monday through Friday; 8 a.m.-5 p.m. CST.
