Miscellaneous Studies Using Chromosome-Specific Probes, FISH

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

Resolution of unusual or complex structural alterations, questionable mosaicism, and unbalanced chromosome abnormalities that cannot be resolved by chromosome or chromosomal microarray analysis

                                

Identifying gain, loss, or rearrangement of chromosome regions using gene or locus-specific probes

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

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

Consult with the laboratory before ordering this test.

 

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 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.
