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.


When this test and flow cytometry testing for leukemia/lymphoma are ordered concurrently, the flow cytometry result will be utilized to determine if sufficient clonal T-cells are available for FISH testing. If the result does not identify a sufficient clonal T-cell population, this FISH test order will be canceled and no charges will be incurred.


If FISH testing proceeds, probes will be performed based on the lymphoma subtype suspected/identified utilizing the table located in Clinical Information.


If the patient is being tracked for known abnormalities, indicate which probes should be used.


The following probe sets are available within the T-cell lymphoma FISH profile:

14q32.1 rearrangement, TCL1A

/i(7q)/ -7/7q-, D7S486/D7Z1

+8, D8Z2/MYC


If T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia/lymphoma (T-PLL) is indicated, TCL1A rearrangement is performed, with reflex to the TRAD FISH probe if TCL1A is negative,
