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

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 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.


See Malignant Lymphoma, Guideline for Bone Marrow Staging Studies in Special Instructions.


Depending on the lymphoma subtype suspected, the most appropriate probes to order are listed in Clinical Information.


If the patient is being tracked for known abnormalities, indicate which probes should be used.


Panel includes testing for the following abnormalities using the probes listed:

14q32.1 rearrangement, TCL1A

-7/7q-/i(7q), D7S486/D7Z1

+8, D8Z2/MYC


This assay detects chromosome abnormalities observed in the blood and bone marrow of patients with T-cell lymphoma. For testing paraffin-embedded tissue samples from patients with T-cell lymphoma, order TLYMF / T-Cell Lymphoma, FISH, Tissue.
