Test ID: CHIMS    
Chimerism Transplant Sorted Cells, Varies

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

Determining the relative amounts of donor and recipient cells in a specimen in sorted cell fractions


An indicator of bone marrow transplant success

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.

SORT2Chimerism Cell Sort 2No, (Bill Only)No

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

Initial Chimerism Testing:

Complete chimerism analysis requires 3 specimens. 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

-CHIMS / Chimerism Transplant Sorted Cells, Varies


Billing occurs with tests CHRGB (for the Pre and Donor specimens) and SORT1 / Chimerism Cell Sort 1 (Bill Only) and/or SORT2 / Chimerism Cell Sort 2 (Bill Only) (for the Post specimen). If an additional donor specimen is submitted, ADONO / Additional Chimerism Donor (Bill Only) will be performed at an additional charge.


Chimerism Transplant Cell Sort:

When this test is ordered SORT1 / Chimerism Cell Sort 1 (Bill Only) and/or SORT2 / Chimerism Cell Sort 2 (Bill Only) will be performed at an additional charge.
