Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: CMAFF    
Chromosomal Microarray (CMA) Familial Testing, FISH

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

Determining the inheritance pattern of copy number changes previously identified by chromosomal microarray analysis in a patient and aiding in the clinical interpretation of the pathogenicity of the copy number change

Reflex Tests Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If the copy number change identified in a patient is below the level of resolution of FISH analysis, CMA studies will be required. In this circumstance, this test will be cancelled and CMACB / Chromosomal Microarray, Congenital, Blood will be performed.

 

This test includes a charge for application of the first probe set (2 FISH probes) and professional interpretation of results. Additional charges will be incurred for application of all reflex probes performed. Analysis charges will be incurred based on the number of cells analyzed per probe set. If no cells are available for analysis, no analysis charges will be incurred.
