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

Complete chimerism analysis requires 3 specimens for 3 separate tests listed below. These specimens should be submitted when collected. An interpretive report will be provided once all specimens are received.

-CHRGB / Chimerism-Recipient Germline (Pretransplant), Varies

-CHIDB / Chimerism-Donor, Varies

-CHIMU / Chimerism Transplant No Cell Sort, Varies or CHIMS / Chimerism Transplant Sorted Cells, Varies


Billing occurs with the following tests:

-CHRGB / Chimerism-Recipient Germline (Pretransplant), Varies; for pre-transplant and donor specimens

-CHIMU / Chimerism Transplant No Cell Sort, Varies; for unsorted post-transplant specimens

-SORT1 / Chimerism Cell Sort 1 (Bill Only) and/or SORT2 / Chimerism Cell Sort 2 (Bill Only); for sorted post-transplant specimens. ordered under CHIMS / Chimerism Transplant Sorted Cells, Varies


If an additional donor specimen is submitted, ADONO / Additional Chimerism Donor (Bill Only) will be performed at an additional charge.
