APC Gene, Full Gene Analysis

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

Confirmation of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) diagnosis for patients with clinical features

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

APC gene sequence analysis for 5' UTR and exons 1 through 15. Array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) is used to test for the presence of large deletions and duplications encompassing the coding regions as well as promoter 1A and 1B of the APC gene.

Additional Tests Lists tests that are always performed, at an additional charge, with the initial tests

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

When this test is ordered, comparative genomic hybridization will always be performed at an additional charge.


This test should be ordered only for individuals with symptoms suggestive of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Asymptomatic patients with a family history of FAP should not be tested until a mutation has been identified in an affected family member.
