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

Identifying the presence of a UGT1A1 variant when the variant has been previously identified in a family member (carrier or affected)

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

This test is only performed when a family member has had a UGT1A1 gene variants previously detected. Documentation of the specific familial UGT1A1 variants must be provided with the specimen in order to perform this test.

Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.
