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

This test is designed for diagnostic bone marrow specimens from patients with multiple myeloma or other plasma cell proliferative disorders. Best results are obtained when the bone marrow demonstrates at least 20% involvement by a plasma cell proliferative disorder.

 

This test includes a charge for application of the first probe set (2 fluorescence in situ hybridization: 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.

 

For diagnostic samples, all probes in the initial panel will be evaluated if sufficient cells are available for analysis. The initial panel includes testing for the following abnormalities using the probes listed:

17p-, TP53/D17Z1

1q gain, TP73/1q22

14q32 rearrangement, IGH

 

Based on the results from the initial panel, reflex testing may be performed to identify the following abnormalities using the probes listed:

t(11;14), CCND1/IGH

t(14;16)(q32;q23) IGH/MAF

t(4;14)(p16.3;q32) FGFR3/IGH

t(14;20)(q32;q12) IGH/MAFB 

 

For follow-up samples, only TP73/1q22, TP53/D17Z1 and MYC probes will be tested. If a previous diagnostic sample was uninformative for a probe set, attempts may be made to achieve results for the missing probe on a subsequent sample.
