X and Y Aneuploidy Detection, Buccal Smear, FISH

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

Diagnosis of mosaic sex chromosome aneuploidy as a supplement to conventional chromosome studies in patients with normal or uncertain chromosome results or when an alternative tissue needs to be studied.

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 appropriate as a supplement to conventional chromosome studies when an alternative tissue needs to be studied to detect sex chromosome aneuploidy.

Reflex Tests Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests.

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.
