Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: MTRBM    
MatePair, Targeted Rearrangements, Hematologic

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

Second-tier testing in hematologic specimens when previous cytogenetic or FISH testing have detected an acquired chromosome abnormality of unknown significance


Determining the size, precise breakpoints, gene content, and any unappreciated complexity of abnormalities detected by other methods such as conventional chromosome and FISH studies


Providing important diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic information critical to proper patient management

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

This testing is only appropriate in individuals with previously detected acquired chromosomal abnormalities. If previous testing was performed at another institution, supply a copy of those results. If sufficient information regarding the patient's known chromosome abnormality is not made available, this testing will be cancelled.

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