T-Cell Lymphoma, FISH, Tissue
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Abnormalities involving TCL1 and ALK are detected using break-apart FISH probes. Trisomy of chromosome 8, isochromosome 7q, are detected using enumeration strategies. A combination of commercially available and Mayo laboratory-developed probes are utilized. For each probe set, 200 interphase nuclei are scored and results for each abnormal probe is 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 (Unpublished Mayo method)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.
